Understanding the ordering process
Find out how to place your order, track your order and request high priority or emergency handling.
Before ordering a new non-connected BIC, you must register your organisation.
Upon registration of your organisation, you will receive credentials to access the form for ordering a non-connected BIC.
A non-connected BIC is always published in the ISO directory of BICs and in the different SWIFTRef directories.
A non-connected BIC is identified by '1' in the 8th position.
A non-connected BIC is validated in the same way as a connected BIC in the text of a SWIFT message.
A non-connected BIC cannot be used in the header of a SWIFT message, otherwise it will be rejected by the SWIFT system.
- A 3-character branch code is optional and may be used to identify a branch, a department or a service of the same organisation.
