Standards MT Maintenance Release 2012

Schedule for Standards MT Release 2012

This timeline gives a full development and implementation schedule for the FIN standards for 2012.

The first publication for the Standards MT Release 2012 is the High-Level Information document. It contains changes that are requested by the SWIFT community but these requests must still be validated by working groups. The working groups may modify or even reject some of the requests. The document is provided as a guide for implementers who are preparing resource and budget allocations for 2012.


Improve your standards release management with MyStandards. This collaborative web-based platform will become generally available as of end of June 2012. Have a look today and discover what MyStandards can do for you.
