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 to register their interest and apply for testing access.

Registered Providers can find information on the FINplus service and instructions on how to subscribe by following this link to FINplus ordering on 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.
