Be part of the SWIFT Partner Programme

Our Business Partners and Certified Providers help users get the best from SWIFT.
Here’s how.

What is the SWIFT Partner Programme?

Our Partner Programme helps SWIFT customers to make well-informed purchasing and implementation decisions, and providers to differentiate their offerings in a crowded market place.

The partner framework covers two programmes:

Our Community Programme

Providers of applications and services that are used across our community are invited to register with us. Registered providers receive a range of benefits, including the opportunity to apply for SWIFT certification of their applications and specialist services.

The SWIFT Certified programme checks compliance with relevant quality criteria and standards. This helps SWIFT customers to make well-informed purchasing and implementation decisions. For providers, the SWIFT Certified label enables them to differentiate their offering in a crowded marketplace.

The certification of service bureaux and interface vendors helps our customers select the most reliable and secure SWIFT connectivity and messaging interface providers.

The SWIFT Shared Infrastructure programme for service bureaux defines certification eligibility criteria, which enable service bureaux to demonstrate that they meet high security and reliability standards.

We also certify companies that develop SWIFT interfaces to ensure that the interface products meet our interoperability requirements.

Our Commercial Programme

In specific regions and market segments, we partner with a select group of Business Partners and Application Partners to complement the SWIFT portfolio and further commercial objectives.
