Interbank messages SIC⁴
Within the scope of the “New SIC Architecture” (NSA) project, definitions have been developed that support the implementation of ISO 20022 interbank messages for payments on the SIC⁴ platform.
The Implementation Guidelines, which contain the rules mutually agreed upon by Swiss interbank governance bodies and committees, are binding for all SIC4 participants that intend using the ISO 20022 standard. A validation platform has been created to support the uniform application of ISO 20022 interbank messages.
The document modules contain message-specific information as well as instructions on the application-specific handling of individual elements.
Validation portal SIC⁴
The validation portal helps promote the uniform application of the ISO 20022 standard for SIC⁴ interbank messages.
