The role of a SEG is threefold:

  • Ensure that the right industry groups are informed of proposed developments to ensure all business requirements will be addressed.
  • Validate the newly developed message definitions from a business perspective as representative of future users. This is to ensure that what will be posted in the ISO 20022 repository by the RA really addresses the needs of future communities of users as described in the business justification accepted by the RMG in the first place.
  • Approve changes to existing message definitions.
