SWIFT Certified Interface Programme

The Certified Interface Programme is for SWIFT interfaces developed by partners and customers. It verifies that interfaces meet interoperability and security requirements.

SWIFT Certified Interface Programme

Our certification programme for partner and customer developed SWIFT interfaces verifies that interfaces meet our rigorous requirements for interoperability, including correct adherence to protocols, and implementation of certain mandatory features. To receive certification for a product, the provider must meet these requirements and pass stringent integration testing.

To ensure business continuity, customers must only connect to SWIFT using an interface certified under the programme.

The Interface Certification Programme covers different messaging protocols, such as FIN, RMA, InterAct store-and-forward, FileAct store-and-forward, FileAct real-time and connectivity, as detailed in the SWIFTNet Interface Vendor Specifications.

The Interface Certification Programme also checks compliance of the vendor interface with a set of mandatory and advisory security requirements, extracted from Customer Security Programme.
