MyStandards Readiness Portal

Testing made simple

A tailored testing environment for Corporates

Now there’s a web platform where you can test against your banks’ usage guidelines whenever you need. It’s a great way to speed implementation of new products.

By subscribing to MyStandards Readiness Portal, your banking partners can make it quick and easy for you to test your messages and formats during implementation – with no setup needed on your side beyond registering your email address.

How it works

Banks publish their standards documentation and Message Implementation Guidelines on MyStandards, updating them regularly to reflect any changes in the underlying international standards and message formats.

Your banking partners can give you access to their documentation, and to a dedicated testing environment called the Readiness Portal, tailored to your particular product and implementation requirements.

Now you can test your messages for compliance with the required formats at any time, without the need to test with counterparties. After testing, the portal will provide you with a validation report, showing any failures that need fixing.

You can also browse and download all publicly available information on MyStandards, including the underlying MT and MX base standards, and send questions and feedback to your bank.

Your benefits

MyStandards Readiness Portal is the smart way for corporates to manage standards implementations and changes:

  • Get easy access to all the documentation you need in one place. Because your bank will tailor the portal for you, you’ll only see documentation relevant to your current needs.
  • Start testing as soon as you’re ready and iron out problems early in the implementation process.
  • Clear validation reports tell you what needs fixing. You can also send questions to your bank directly from the portal – and they can monitor your testing progress and make sure you get support when needed.
  • Fuss-free for you. There’s no software to install or subscriptions on your side, so once your bank grants you access you’re ready to go.
