FAQs on transaction reporting – Question II.2.1.15

Data Field (21)

Would it be possible to extend the max length of the Contract ID?

We use this field as a reference and it is displayed in a number of lists and platforms (including XXXXX) together with the UTI, the Action and the parties to a transaction (unlike the Contract name, which is only available by searching the XML)

Our contract ID  includes the Instrument and the Period and immediately pinpoints potential issues with a given contract





The length of the Contract ID field is predefined in ACER’s XSD schema. At present there are no plans to change the schema. Schema REMITTable1_V1.xsd and REMITTable1_V2.xsd have been widely consulted with the industry. Any future amendments to the schemas will require a new consultation with the industry.
