Launch of the new edition of ISO 20022 on 31 May 2013

On 7 May 2013, ISO published a new edition of the ISO 20022 recipe to develop financial message standards. The new edition consists of eight parts that can be purchased from the ISO website at www.iso.org.

On 31 May 2013, the ISO 20022 Registration Authority (RA) implemented this new edition. The impact of the new edition is described in a special supplement of the Spring 2013 edition of the ISO 20022 Newsletter.

Although there is minor impact on existing messages, the new recipe offers new possibilities for developers of ISO 20022 messages. As from 31 May 2013, the ISO 20022 website has also offered new features such as a new Repository Searchfunction to navigate into the ISO 20022 Business Process Catalogue and Data Dictionary and a new e-Repository that offers the possibility to download all current and previous versions of ISO 20022 messages with the Data Dictionary in a processable EMF format.

All developers of ISO 20022 messages who are currently using the ‘Editor' modelling tool developed by SWIFT can obtain from the RA a new version of the Editor that is compliant with the new edition of the standard and offers access to the new features. The new  e-Repository also includes the ISO 20022 implementation meta model to allow developers who do not want to use the Editor to use software tools of their choice that would produce message models compliant with the new edition of ISO 20022 as implemented by the RA.
