ISO 15022
Data Field Dictionary

Welcome to ISO 15022

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies).

International Standard ISO 15022 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC68, Financial Services, Sub-Committee SC9, Securities and Related Financial Instruments.

ISO 15022 sets the principles necessary to provide the different communities of users with the tools to design message types to support their specific information flows. These tools consist of a set of syntax and message design rules, a dictionary of data fields and a catalogue of messages built by the industry with the above mentioned fields and rules.

To address the evolving needs of the industry as they arise, the Data Field Dictionary and Catalogue of Messages have been kept outside the standard. They are made available by the Registration Authority which maintains them as necessary upon the request of industry participants.

The ISO 15022 standard is described in the document "ISO 15022 Securities - Scheme for Messages (Data Field Dictionary), Part 1 - Data Field and Message Design Rules and Guidelines and Part 2 - Maintenance of the Data Field Dictionary and Catalogue of Messages".

The two parts of the ISO 15022 standard and other ISO standards can be obtained through In the Search box, type in 15022, then Search. The two parts of the standard are available for purchase in either a PDF or paper version.
