STEP2 SEPA Direct Debit Core (SDD Core) Participants can integrate the functionality available in this API into their own existing solutions to manage their configuration within the STEP2 SDD Core Service and perform their daily operational tasks. Only Participants in the STEP2 SDD Core Service can interact and enter inquiries or commands according to their user profile. The API Interface allows communication with the STEP2 SDD Core Service by means of sending an API Request to and receiving an API Response back from the STEP2 Central System. The response to the request is always synchronous.
STEP2 Participants can use the API functionality on the SWIFT API gateway, which transmits API requests and responses to and from the STEP2 Central System.
Guidelines for provisioning and access can be found in the Network Interfaces documentation available on the EBA CLEARING Customer Portal:
Users who do not have access to the Customer Portal can request access by contacting their EBA CLEARING Administrator.
