ISO 20022 Federal Register Notice (October 2021)


On October 4, 2021, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) issued a press release (Off-site) for the publication of a Federal Register notice (Notice) (Off-site) announcing that the Federal Reserve Banks will adopt the ISO 20022 message format for the Fedwire Funds Service. The Board is also seeking input through the Notice on a revised plan for migrating the Fedwire Funds Service to the ISO 20022 message format. Specifically, the Board is proposing a single-day implementation to fully enhanced ISO 20022 messages. This migration is targeted for, and would be no earlier than, November 2023.
