Fedwire® Services Testing Opportunities

The Federal Reserve Banks recognize that widely available and reliable testing is an essential component of Fedwire Services. To meet this need, we operate the Depository Institution Testing (DIT) environment on a daily basis Monday through Saturday. In addition, on selected Saturdays, the production environment is available for customer testing.

The FedLine Direct® Message Environment and Configuration Change Matrix identifies the appropriate steps, lead times, and schedules to test changes you wish to make to your FedLine Direct environment.
