VP is about to develop an interface for communication in ISO 20022 in several steps, where Corporate Action was the first of seven steps, which was completed on 21 September 2015. All seven steps and a full operational ISO 20022 interface will be developed and implemented in due time for VP’s connection to TARGET2-Securities (T2S) for settlement of securities in DKK in 2018.

VP SECURITIES will join T2S with EUR in 2016 and DKK in 2018. Since all communication with T2S will be conducted in ISO 20022, VP has decided to develop a fully functional ISO 20022 interface for all business areas.

VP is involved in several different working groups with SWIFT, and has co-signed the “ISO 20022 Harmonization Charter for the Financial Industry”, published during SIBOS 2015.
