Clearing houses and central counterparties (CCPs) are financial auxiliaries according to ANZSIC 2006. Recognised CCPs are clearing houses that interpose themselves between counterparties to contracts traded in one or more financial markets, becoming the buyer to every seller and the seller to every buyer. A CCP becomes counterparty to trades with market participants through novation, an open offer system, or another legally binding arrangement.
