2017 v2.1

SEPA Credit Transfer Scheme Interbank Implementation Guidelines 2017 version 2.1

These Implementation Guidelines () set out the rules for implementing the interbank ISO 20022 XML message standards based on version 1.2 of the 2017 Credit Transfer () rulebook, which took effect on 28 June 2018.

The 2017 v2.1 published on 28 June 2018, which replace v2.0, include the following updates:

- The ‘candidate’ ISO 20022 messages related to the inquiry processes (i.e. Claim Non-Receipt, Claim for Value Date Correction and Response to the inquiries) were replaced by the ISO 20022 approved versions.
- The errata to the SCT Interbank IGs 2017 v2.0.

It should be noted that the inquiry processes will only become effective in November 2019, as stated in the current version of the 2017 scheme rulebook.
XML Schema Definitions (XSDs) related to the aforementioned are also made available. (Note: XSD files can be opened via a text editor (e.g. Microsoft Notepad) or XML Schema editor.)

Disclaimer: XSDs are not developed for ‘production’ purposes, they are to instantiate the business rules and restrictions contained in the implementation guidelines in a formal interchange format, sometimes referred to as Technical Validation Subsets (TVSs). Production instantiations should refer to the default ISO 20022 namespaces.

For more information on the data formats based on the global ISO 20022 message standards, refer to the Publication 'Shortcut to the SEPA Data Format' .
