ISO 20022 CBPR+ compliance for third-party providers
Swift’s Partner Programme helps customers make well-informed purchasing and implementation decisions, and providers differentiate their offerings in a thriving marketplace. You can find all the information you need on how to join here: Swift’s Partner Programme.
Swift is working closely with the partner community to provide access to necessary information, specifications, tools and test services to support our customers in their drive to adopt ISO 20022, on-time and to the right standard.
Which partners are CBPR+ ready?
Access the list of partners that have confirmed and shared their commitment to support the CBPR+ message collection, in addition to equivalent MTs.
In March 2023, acting on feedback from the community, Swift enabled ISO 20022 messages for cross-border payments and cash reporting (CBPR+) businesses.
November 2025, marks the moment when MT categories 1, 2, and 9 will be decommissioned on FIN, and the final date to enable full ISO 20022 for cross-border payments.
Usage guidelines, the Vendor Readiness Portal and self-attestation
Partners may download the Cross-Border Payments and Reporting Plus (CBPR+) usage guidelines and test compliance using the Vendor Readiness Portal (VRP) or the Enterprise Testing Solution for Swift partners. Once valid messages have been received for all message types, application providers may complete and submit the self-attestation form.
The list of partner applications that have self-attested as “ISO 20022 CBPR+ Ready” has been published and will be updated monthly, to enable financial institutions to make informed choices when making purchasing decisions.
To request access to the VRP or to submit the self-attestation form please contact us.
Complete and submit the self-attestation form
We publish and update the partners and products that have passed our CBPR+ readiness tests. Apply using the self-attestation form.
Enterprise Testing Solution for Swift Partners
The Enterprise Testing Solution (ETS) provides a stable and rich environment for Swift partners to test and qualify their products against our messaging and cloud services. The ITB environment – see below – simulates message flows, while ETS allows for true end-to-end message flow testing, which is an important improvement for CBPR+.
The ETS is currently available to partners who:
- Have a payments application (back-end, core banking, etc.)
- Are supporting clients on-board gpi services
- Are providing on-boarding to Swift Business Connect product
Swift partners can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to register their interest and apply for testing access.
Integration Test Bed (ITB)
Swift provides the swift.finplus!xpf service on the Integration TestBed (ITB). Registered Providers can find information on the FINplus service and instructions on how to subscribe by following this link to FINplus ordering on Swift.com. A ‘knowledge tip’ has been created to give more detail to both banks and partners.
In addition, Registered Providers may apply for a Swift Compatible Application label to validate the compliance of their payments application. The requirements and process are published in the Knowledge Centre.
Swift Compatibility Label Programme
The Swift compatibility label means an application complies with carefully defined requirements for Swift standards, messaging and connectivity - helping customers to choose with confidence.
Find out how to apply for a label of your application, or browse our directory of Swift Certified Applications for the solution that fits your business.
