PostFinance is ready for the ISO 20022 standard
Current schemes and standards for credit transfers (EPO, DTA) will be replaced by ISO 20022 message types and processing rules. PostFinance recommends that you change to EPO in XML format, in accordance with ISO 20022, as quickly as possible. You can already benefit from the universal ISO 20022 EPO service. For example, in addition to the EPO, you can also receive and handle processing messages and execution/individual confirmations in ISO 20022 format. The IBAN will be the sole primary identification feature.
The current procedures, standards and formats (EPO 1st to 3rd generation in text format) will no longer be supported after the end of 2017.
