SWIFT KYC Registry API

Version 4.0 Dev Version 3.1 Live

Overview

KYC Registry is a shared platform for managing and exchanging a standardised set of KYC (Know Your Customer) data and supporting documentation.

SWIFT provides a centralized repository for financial institutions and corporate clients to manage their due diligence information in one single location. This gives customers flexibility, security and convenience in obtaining and exchanging bilateral KYC information across the platform.

In order to use this API, the consumer institution must be an existing KYC Registry customer, should have established KYC relationships with other users of the registry and must be subscribed to the KYC Registry API.
