SWIFT KYC Registry API

Overview

KYC Registry is a shared platform for managing and exchanging a standardised set of KYC (Know Your Customer) data and supporting documentation.

SWIFT provides a centralized repository for financial institutions and corporate clients to manage their due diligence information in one single location. This provides the customers with the flexibility, security and convenience in obtaining and exchanging bilateral KYC information across the platform.

In the age of digital transformation, API (Application Programme Interface) is becoming more compelling as a mechanism of integration, adeptness and efficiency. SWIFT launched the KYC Registry API in June 2019 as a value added service that is now available for all customers.

 

 

Types of KYC Registry API

In order to obtain KYC data and documents via the KYC Registry API, the customer must be an existing KYC Registry user and have established KYC-Relationships with the other customers in the Registry. Currently, there are five distinct KYC Registry API calls that are available for our customers:

My Listing API & Counterparty Listing API

Retrieve a list of your entities and all of your counterparties on the KYC Registry

Connect to the My Listing API to retrieve a list of your entities, and the Counterparty Listing API to obtain a list of all your KYC-Relationships

Data Retrieval API

Retrieve only the data points from the latest KYC Profile of a specific entity

Connect to the Data Retrieval API to retrieve only the data points from the latest KYC Profile of a specific entity.

Note: The API call will automatically activate expired KYC-Relationships

 

Document Retrieval API

Retrieve the evidencing documents from the latest KYC Profile of a specific entity.

Connect to the Document Retrieval API to retrieve only the evidencing documents from the KYC Profile of a specific entity.

Profile Retrieval API

Automatically retrieve the most current KYC Profile including all data and all supporting documents of your counterparties

Connect to the Profile Retrieval API and predefine the KYC Profile you require. The API enables you to download the entire KYC Profile.

Note: The API call will automatically activate expired KYC-Relationships

 

Optionally, you can specify a specific date range to retrieve updated information only of all your KYC Registry API calls. You may use the input parameter {last_published_since} to enable your system to only retrieve the updated information
