ISO 20022 rollout for general meetings – Facilitation of Relationship Management Applications (RMA) key exchange - Update


Note: This announcement, originally published on 19 October 2021, has been updated to provide customers with information on the RMA key exchange process. Changes have been highlighted.

Further to Announcement C21050 Clearstream postponed the ISO 20022 Rollout for General Meetings. The already completed RMA key exchange will be eligible for the upcoming rollout at a later date in 2022.

Also additional RMA key exchange process will be initiated for customers who have not yet done it.

As part of our regular communications, and further to Announcement C21031, Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers about the process of RMA key exchange.

The RMA key is required for the exchange of General Meeting messages, in ISO 20022 via SWIFT Finplus.

Clearstream Banking has already initiated the process.
