Central Securities Depository Of IRAN




Energy Exchange Integrated Settlement System (ENEXIS) is a basic framework and platform to settle the transactions conducted on the two Iranian commodity exchanges, Iran Energy Exchange (IRENEX) and Iran Mercantile Exchange (IME), designed and launched by Central Securities Depository of Iran as a bid to streamline the relevant processes.

This project was designed in three phases and aimed to integrate pre-trade and post-trade processes of the commodity exchanges’ physical markets, minimize operational risks such as transactions regulation, lower operational costs, and proceed all stages electronically. 

The first phase included the introduction of basic information and registration of producers, suppliers, commodities, and offerings. The second stage encompassed the processes of registering brokerage firms, customers, accounts, and buy orders, as well as, examining and approving orders, and development of management dashboard. The third phase was settlement processes and fees calculation, payments, delivery of goods, and the supervisory dashboard.

Previously, settlement of the transaction carried out on IRENEX was performed manually, considering the huge amounts of transactions and the market expansion, the model was prone to many difficulties. Therefore, development of an e-settlement system for the transactions done on both IRENEX & IME was inevitable.

Consequently, design and implementation of the first sector of the system dedicated to Energy Exchange Settlement (ENEXIS) was kicked off in 2017 and launched in 2018.
