IBAN (International Bank Account Number) and BIC (Bank Identifier Code)
In accordance with the SEPA standard, euro credit transfers can be executed only with an IBAN. For other credit transfers, the account number and the BIC or a country-specific code are mandatory. A Giro international (without urgent) to the USA, Canada, Australia, India and China requires a country-specific code if the payment currency matches the currency of the country of the recipient bank. Countries for which the IBAN is mandatory are marked in the IBAN country list.
