SWIFT Compatible Interface Programme
Our SWIFT Compatible Interface programme for registered providers and non-SWIFT interfaces helps assure that interfaces meet requirements for interoperability with SWIFT messaging services, including correct adherence to protocols, and implementation of certain mandatory features. To receive compatibility confirmation for a product, the provider must meet these requirements and pass integration testing.
SWIFT customers must only connect to SWIFT using a SWIFT Compatible Infrastructure.
The SWIFT Compatible Interface programme covers different messaging protocols, such as FIN, RMA, InterAct store-and-forward, FileAct store-and-forward, FileAct real-time and connectivity, as detailed in the SWIFTNet Interface Vendor Specifications.
The SWIFT Compatible Interface programme also checks compliance of the vendor interface with a set of mandatory and advisory security requirements, derived from the SWIFT Customer Security Programme.
