Service Bureau Directory
All Service Bureaux that have successfully finalised the certification process are published in the Service Bureau Directory. All Service Bureaux have been requested to comply with the SIP 2021 release as of the beginning of this year and with the SIP 2022 release by the end of December 2022.
A Service Bureau that demonstrates compliance with the requirements is published in the Service Bureau Directory with the certified status and the indication of the Shared Infrastructure Programme release [year] against which compliance was established.
A new service bureau is listed on the Service Bureau Directory with the In assessment status with the following conditions:
- It is in compliance with the business eligibility criteria

To support and facilitate the SWIFT community adoption of ISO 20022, SWIFT is putting in place interoperability measures including in-flow translation for CBPR+ messages. This implies the translation of ISO messages and the embedding of a converted MT inside the original ISO message. We also refer to these converted messages as multi-format MX messages. To support in-flow translation, it is necessary that the SWIFT Users are able to connect to the FINplus service, receive and process data from the multi-format MX messages to the back office applications. Compliant in column” ISO20022” means that the service bureau is running a compatible interface supporting this.
If a Service Bureau is no longer listed on the Service Bureau Directory, it means that the Service Bureau is NOT compliant with the current or previous release of Shared Infrastructure Programme and that the remediation period has been exceeded. It may also mean that the Service Bureau has decided to terminate its Service Bureau activities.
