ISO 20022 – Enabling Your Payments Transformation
ISO 20022 has been developed as a uniform and universal standard payments protocol to counter the problem of the existing unstandardized and uncharacterized way of formatting exchanges of financial and payment messages between countries, customers and banks. Implementation creates global interoperability and improved customer experiences by realizing end-to-end processing across domains and geographies. Globally, financial institutions must execute ISO 20022 compliancy by the end of November 2022 within the EU, and by the end of November 2023 in the US.
