What is ISO 20022?
ISO 20022 is an emerging global and open standard for payments messaging. It creates a common language and model for payments data across the globe. One that provides higher quality data than other standards which means higher quality payments for all. One that can adapt to new needs and new approaches. One that’s not controlled by a single interest. One that can be used by anyone in the industry and implemented on any network.
