How does it work?

SurePay connects on behalf of the Bank to the SWIFT Beneficiary Account Verification (BAV) Service for sending an IBAN-Name Check request (Consuming) and for responding to an IBAN-Name Check request (Data provisioning).

Sending an IBAN-Name Check Request (Consuming)

To do so, the Bank sends a Request to SurePay, that includes:


On behalf of the Bank, SurePay will send the request to SWIFT based on the bank’s SWIFT certificate with the Pre Validation service selected. The Requests will be validated against the databases of the Participants through the use of the SWIFT BAV Scheme or against the central database from SWIFT named the  ‘Central Beneficiary Account Verification’.

 SurePay will send a Response back to the bank, containing a name matching result and – if necessary – additional information on the account. 


Responding to an IBAN-Name Check Request (Data provisioning)

The Bank will respond to incoming requests via the SWIFT BAV Service where SurePay will match the incoming input against the data provided by the Bank and give back the response to the SWIFT BAV Service.
