The download is ideal for updating existing bank master data in software programs relating to IIDs in credit, debit, and general payments applications.

The Master Data is available in text (ISO 8859-1), Excel or JSON format and contains capital and lower case letters, umlaut and special characters.

Each text file entry consists of a record with fixed-length field, ending with carriage return and linefeed (CR/LF). The records are sorted in ascending order according to IIDs (cf. record description).

The content quality of the Excel file corresponds to that of the text file. The Excel file contains a separate title line.

In addition, the Bank Master can be obtained in JSON format via a so-called REST API, which is particularly suitable for connecting web services.
