ISO 20022 migration (CBPR+)
DZ BANK’s concrete implementation plan
ISO 20022 migration (CBPR+) at DZ BANK
Information for the exchange of messages with banks in the context of the changeover to ISO 20022 (MX) for cross-border payments and reports (CBPR+)
Since March 20th, 2023, cross-border payment messages via SWIFT are converted to an ISO 20022-based messaging (CBPR+ = cross border payments and reporting). It was the start of a multi-year coexistence period of MT and MX formats which will allow banks to already benefit from the richer, structured data of the XML standard, while other banks will use a longer transition period to switch from MT to MX. Passive accessibility for the MX formats is already mandatory since March 20th, 2023. All banks must have converted to ISO 20022 by the SWIFT release in November 2025 at the latest.
ISO 20022 migration (CBPR+): DZ BANK’s concrete implementation plan
From the time of the changeover, DZ BANK exclusively sends messages to other banks in the new MX format (pacs.008 or pacs.009) for the current MT formats MT 103 (single customer credit transfer) and MT 202 (general financial institution transfer).
For the MT 9** messages listed in the table, no conversion to MX is planned for the time being.
For message types for which there is no translation into MX formats, MT messages will continue to be sent by default, e.g. MT 110, MT 190, MT 290.
|SWIFT MT||MT 012||MT 103||MT 202||MT 210||MT 940||MT 942||MT 950|

||MX format since
|No outgoing MT 210 or camt.057 will be sent
For incoming messages, DZ BANK follows the SWIFT’s recommendation and offers a service-oriented transitional solution: Since March 20th, 2023, DZ BANK is able to receive messages in both MT and MX format. From the SWIFT release in November 2025 onwards, all banks must have switched to ISO 20022 and from then onwards only messages in MX format will be accepted.
