Participants can join or change their configuration for SEDA once a month following the calendar published and regularly updated by ABI under the following link:
Therefore, the admission calendar for SEDA may differ from those applicable for the other STEP2 Services.
Participants joining the SEDA Service for the first time should take the necessary steps to register with ABI for the SEDA Service. It is mandatory to be registered with ABI to be included in the SEDA routing table (SED000) and a pre-condition for joining the live service.
However, it is possible to start testing SEDA, even if the participant is not yet registered with ABI. Two networks are available for SEDA: SWIFTNet and SIANet. Participants should take the necessary steps to register with one of these networks.
Any SEDA registration for the live environment will only be validated if (1) the BIC11 is included in the SEDA routing table for the requested inclusion date and (2) the network configuration has been verified.
