From September 3, 2012 CJSC Depository Clearing Company (DCC) will stop settlement of trades executed in the Standard sector as well as it will cease accepting securities posted as collateral for trades in the Standard sector and FORTS Derivatives market. Thereby National Settlement Depository (NSD) will become the single settlement depository for the Standard sector and FORTS Derivatives market.  The move has been implemented within the framework of the integration between NSD and DCC.    

In May 2012 NSD started securities settlement of trades executed in the Standard sector using trading sections typed "Blocked for clearing. RTS Standard" and in July 2012 it commenced accepting securities as collateral using sections typed "Blocked for clearing. FORTS".
