In October 2017, the Federal Reserve Banks announced their plans to migrate to the ISO® 20022 message standard for the Fedwire® Funds Service. Implementation of the ISO 20022 standard will be completed in three phases, starting in November 2020 and ending in late 2023. To help participants and software vendors stay informed, we developed the Fedwire Funds Service ISO 20022 Implementation Center.

Review educational materials

The Federal Reserve Banks have designed an educational outreach program to increase awareness of the ISO 20022 initiative for the Fedwire Funds Service, and the changes that it will bring. To date, the outreach program consists of a series of webinars that are customized to particular target audiences. All the details, including previous webinar recordings, are available in the implementation center.
