Beside the Repository Search function that can be used to query the contents of the ISO 20022 Repository, electronic copies of the Repository are also made available and updated on a monthly basis, whenever there have been changes. It includes all current and previous versions of ISO 20022 message definitions and the Data Dictionary.

To be able to browse the content of this repository, you have first to download the ecore implementation metamodel. Then, you have to generate an Eclipse plugin from the implementation metamodel. With this plugin, you can open the repository and browse its content. There is a known performance issue when opening the repository, download the tip to learn how to work around it.
On top of the e-Repository containing only the ISO approved message definitions, a new e-Repository is made available around the end of December that also includes new draft candidate versions of message definitions resulting from the yearly maintenance cycle that have been submitted to the approval of the related Standards Evaluation Groups (SEGs).
The e-Repository with the draft candidate message definitions is provided in EMF format together with the ISO 20022 ecore implementation metamodel.
For Submitting Organisations using the 'Editor' modelling tool provided by SWIFT to develop candidate ISO 20022 messages, a specific version of the e-Repository can be obtained from the ISO 20022 Registration Authority.
