Technical Standards


A "standard" could be defined as a formalized template for exchanging compatible and interoperable information.


In order to act as an operative communication model, a standard has to:

  • satisfy the needs of the users;
  • be readily understandable to the users
  • be shared by the users.


If these conditions are respected and fulfilled, the standard can be adopted by an increasing number of users.


The standards analysis and definition activities are crucially important for the development of effective and efficient communication services.


The CBI standards, defined by CBI, are aimed at a comprehensive definition of Functions able to utterly satisfy Business requirements of both Enterprises and Banks.


The CBI standards include:

  • Technical rules for the supply of services through the network infrastructure;
  • Directions regarding contents and ways of representing exchanged information


The CBI configures itself mostly as a standardization body.


The CBI specifications are aligned with the ISO20022 specifications, the global specifications for the supply of on-line financial services.


The CBI Technical Documentation represents the foundation upon which corporate banking software and interfaces are created.
