INSCX exchange – formal EU Live Launch

EU | Posted on November 22nd, 2010

Market coverage will be extended to include the United States by early December 2010 with full global access enabled to include Asia by first quarter 2011. INSCX exchange (Integrated Nano-Science & Commodity Exchange) is the worlds only source of benchmark Cash and Forward physical delivery contracts in (SHE) accredited compliant and validated nanomaterials, advanced materials and nano-enabled commodities. INSCX exchange will also publish twice daily a reading of INMX (INSCX NanoMaterials Index) the world's first truly representative barometer of price trends in a basket of existing engineered nanomaterials. The launch of the formal trade platform represents the first global attempt of significance to deliver into being a formal self-regulatory structure of governance across the emerging nanomaterials industry as a basis upon which to grow and sustain the compliant commercialisation of nanotechnology.

Using a Member Firm to register

INSCX exchange is a principal to principal commodity exchange. By this is referred the fact all trade is completed using professional securities industry qualified brokers. The brokers act as the agents for customers (Trade buyers and sellers of nanomaterials). The obligation of a brokers is to safeguard customer confidentiality and to ensure "best execution" for any customer order in the market in accordance with long defined Conduct of Business rules that are applied on the world's various financial and commodity exchanges.

The Exchange Specialist (NanoCapital Markets/Stekram Markets) plays a dual role acting to place live bids/offers onto the market for orders placed by customers either direct with the Specialist itself, or by other broker members of the exchange acting for their customers. The Specialist system is used by exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange and is designed to provide a fair and open market for all customers regardless of financial size. The Specialist and other broker members can also help organisations process their application to join the exchange.

Commercial Standards

The exchange will introduce the ability to deliver "true and fair" price transparency, neutrality and trade flexibility to interest in the supply and/or procurement of these alternative commodities. Supply and Buy-side interest will be able in an instant to conduct trade in accordance with standards long observed by the world's prime raw material and commodity markets.

Pricing

Standards introduced by INSCX include the open reporting of all trade to market participants listing particulars of material, price and quantity helping establish "true and fair" pricing of these commodities using the open market process to accurately reflect the competing interests of buyer versus seller.

Forward Trade

All commodities listed by INSCX exchange are to be traded Cash Settled and/or on a forward delivery basis. The exchange will permit Forward trade for delivery by the following series; March, June, September and December.

Environment, Health & Safety (EHS)

INSCX™ operates a dedicated (SHE) Credits System enabling nanomaterial suppliers (Upstream) and buyers/users (Downstream) regardless of financial resource to use the exchange process to fund the cost of acquiring the industry benchmark EHS standard, Nanomaterials (SHE) accreditation.

The initiative delivered by INSCX exchange represents an important milestone in the practical development of safety standards across the global nanomaterials industry, in a manner where cost does not act as an impediment to link business requirements for safety inextricably with the wider societal interest.

Quality, Indemnification and Traceability

INSCX provides a systematic means to deliver assurance on material quality, indemnification (insurance) and traceability.

Material Quality

A key factor which will lend itself to increasing the commercial usefulness of nanomaterials will be the industry's ability to independently provide assurance as to a supplied materials' quality. An independent capacity to prove material standards is a long established commercial requirement currently absent from the nanomaterials industry.

INSCX exchange provides a working, neutral and confidential solution to independently prove the material quality of all exchange listed products. These products, nanomaterials, advanced materials and nano-enabled commodities, listed for physical delivery on the live trading platform will be independently inspected by IntertekMSG, the specialist nanomaterials arm of Intertek plc, one of the worlds premier names in materials measurement and characterisation, to establish quality prior to any buyer having to make payment.

Indemnification & Traceability

Products supplied via INSCX™ will be supplied accompanied by full Commodity insurance, covering commercial, political and financial risk delivery yet again another commercial benchmark. As regards traceability in a manner which does not impede the pursuit of compliant commercial opportunity, INSCX exchange provides a practical, working solution to meet regulatory calls for greater oversight in the use of nanomaterials whether for industrial and/or consumer deliverables purposes. From initial launch all commodities sourced via INSCX exchange are to be sequenced from source through the supply chain to end product using "Downstream Audit Sequencing", the exchange procedure to reference the unique trade ID reference generated at the point of trade on the exchange. This sequencing will be a mandatory requirement for all market participants enabling a full reverse audit referencing to occur on receipt of any formal request from a regulatory authority for full disclosure of exchange trading records in response to a proven EHS concern.

Tradition supporting Innovation

INSCX exchange sets the business standard for trade practice in nanomaterials and nano-enabled commodities placing at the forefront of sustainable commercialisation the introduction of disciplines by way of applying to the emerging nanomaterials industry the model of the open market. The exchange process is about enabling interaction between trade (Commercial User) buyers and sellers of these alternative commodities in accordance with the defined material and financial standards observed by the world of commerce proper.

The ability of the open commodity market process to deliver a level playing field to both buyer and seller has proven the catalyst to drive global trade in any industrial sector with coherence from the period of the first industrial revolution to the present. The market is the open gatekeeper "owned" by those who choose to use it, and in so doing opt freely to comply with its rules and regulations for supply and/or procurement purposes.

INSCX exchange is about the observance of trade standards and compliance in pricing, material quality, payment and delivery obligation. Its launch will now go some considerable distance toward helping the emerging nanomaterials industry to coordinate and sustain its organic growth in a manner capable of enlisting the support of the essentials of capital investment and indemnification whilst providing a commercial template to help official agencies of state continue the ongoing effort to fashion a practical regulatory framework for nanomaterials.

The exchange will as of tomorrow 8am GMT be open for business.
