Electronic Banking Internet Communication Standard
EBICS has developed into a popular process for secure data transfer between corporate clients and banks. In Germany, France and Switzerland, EBICS is the official standard – but EBICS is also offered by banks in many other European countries. In addition to standardised specifications for data transfer between corporate clients and banks, EBICS also includes standardised specifications for the authorisation of payments using digital signatures. Over the years, EBICS has not only established itself in European client-bank procedures but has now also become a communication standard for inter-bank payment transactions.
The current version is EBICS 3.0 - 22nd November 2022 is the planned end date specified by the German Federal Bank for the change to EBICS 3.0 in Germany. more about EBICS 3.0
