How to become a RIX participant

An application to participate in the RIX system should be addressed to the Riksbank. The Riksbank processes every application and if the institution is considered to meet the requirements for participation it will sign an accession agreement with the Riksbank. In addition, a grant of pledge is to be presented if the institution is to use any credit facility.

"The Riksbank's instructions for Counterparty applications" are a part of the RIX Rules and Regulations (appendix H9) and have been compiled with the aim of facilitating the application process for institutions wishing to become RIX participants, Monetary Policy Counterparties, Primary Monetary Policy Counterparties or Counterparties in Foreign Exchange Swaps.
