Maintain your data Features

Update your SEPA and SSI data

Managing your data is easy. SWIFTRef Publishing Area Keys (PAKs), which are freely available online access/maintenance tools for financial institutions, allow you to publish and maintain your own reference data to the SWIFTRef platform.

This data could include standing settlement instructions (SSIs) and SEPA information, such as foreign currency correspondents, SEPA-scheme adherence and ACH memberships.

Currently you can provide, review and update your reference data via the following PAKs:

  • SEPA PAK. This refers to your institution’s membership of the SEPA clearing and settlement mechanisms per SEPA scheme, and your intermediaries if applicable. The accuracy of this information is critical if your counterparty financial institutions are to find out how your institution is reachable via SEPA.
  • SSI PAK. This refers to your institution’s correspondents per currency for any type of cash payments, including commercial and wholesale (FX, MM, derivatives) payments. With this information, the sender will be able to find out the correct route for any foreign currency payments to you.

Once you have registered to use a PAK, we will run validation checks and issue your unique ID allowing you to login and access the requested PAKs.

If you would like to take advantage of this service, we invite you to request your PAK today.
