As banks and their corporate customers continue to prepare for SEPA, we’ve identified a significant need for a comprehensive solution for IBAN conversion and validation.

Accuity, the leading provider of payment routing data, AML data and screening software and services, has today announced the release of IBAN Complete, the most comprehensive solution for IBAN and SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) payments.

As both banks and corporates look to implement systems to meet SEPA standards, Accuity is launching IBAN Complete, a much-needed solution to facilitate SEPA-compliant payments. Leveraging its central role between global banks, government agencies, central banks and issuing authorities, Accuity is uniquely able to deliver high-quality data and ensure the accuracy of the IBAN conversion and validation process.
