Banking Survey – Implementation of camt.086 Message and Global Service Codes
The ISO 20022 camt.086 BSB message version of the TWIST BSB is two years old and the AFP Global Service Codes (GSC) is now three years old. Question: how far along are the banks in implementing both standards? A survey was sent to 30 banks that are active with the BSB or have an ongoing interest. 15 banks responded. Below are the aggregate results of the survey.
The ISO 20022 camt.086 message is the new version of the BSB. It is functionally equivalent as the TWIST version 3.1. All future enhancements will only be to the camt.086 message.
The Global Service Codes allow receivers of BSBs from multiple banks to do standardized analysis of bank services. All bank systems run on their own set of proprietary service codes; these are transmitted with the BSB. The GSC allows banks to also report the services using an industry standard codes; that allows corporates to compare services between banks and to aggregate services across all banks.
- Of the 30 banks who received the survey:
- 14 banks are live with the BSB
- 2 with only the camt.086
- 8 with only the TWIST version 3.1
- 4 with both versions
- 2 are in limited customer release
- 2 are in development with the camt.086
- 2 have future development plans
- Of the 5 banks that responded to the survey and produce only the TWIST version 3.1:
- 1 is currently working on the camt.086
- 4 are planning on implementing the camt.086 in 2015 or 2016
- Of the 9 banks that responded to the survey and produce the TWIST version 3.1:
- 8 banks have no intention of sun-setting the version 3.1
- 1 bank indicated that it is TBD
- Implementation of the Global Service Codes vary:
- 3 banks are live with the GSC for their 3.1 version
- 4 banks have implemented the camt.086 with the GSC
- All other banks have indicated that they will implement the GSC with the camt.086
- Of the 10 banks that responded to the question: ”About how many bank customers receive the BSB?”:
- The banks range ran from 2 to 325+.
- Throwing out the high and low numbers, 8 banks averaged 32 corporate customers each.
- 14 banks are live with the BSB
In summary, banks have picked up speed migrating to the camt.086 message. While some banks already provide the Global Service Codes with TWIST version 3.1, the majority will implement with the camt.086.
CGI–MP camt.086 Proposal Executive Summary
The Pre-Study Task Force provided a forum for corporations, banks and vendors to collaborate on a 6-week assignment to assess the feasibility of harmonizing BSB and camt.086 messages.
The Task Force recommends that a Working Group be formed to undertake a detailed BSB/camt.086 harmonization assignment:
- Ø In-scope:
- Build upon the foundations laid by TWIST and AFP.
- Clarify message schema capability and where required enhance message schema to meet the requirements of Cash Management products e.g. addition of balances, interests, value dates, tax etc.
- Establish a global, universal service code set, to be recommended as a standard for all corporations, banks and vendors.
- Extend the set of mandatory fields to support the requirements of eInvoicing to meet Global authority requirements.
- Improve the implementation and validation guidelines to assist banks with adoption and standardization, focusing on core capabilities that should be implemented.
- Further explore the drivers (technology, economic, operational) that will enable the broad adoption of standards by banks
- Ø Out of scope:
- Delivery channels
- Ø The Task Force also recommends as a second phase, that the Working Group consider the following:
- Expand the global, universal service code set to include additional bank services e.g. Guarantees, Loans, Derivatives etc.

News from the Corporates
Robert McGlew of AIG says “AIG has a goal of having all bank fees reported electronically for all bank accounts across the world.
AIG has had some success with major banking partners in terms of reporting. Even banks that supply BSB file have challenges in terms of quality of data and coverage to all countries. AIG would like to expand reporting with all BSB capable banks. We encourage all banks to continue to make progress to be BSB capable in the near future.
- Quality of data issues:
- Target Currency incorrect
- No “Sent Prices” included in submission
- Summarized cost submitted
- Taxes paid included as a bank fee
- AFP Codes not used / Categorizing Fees inconsistent
- Cost of BSB file transmission not in line with other banks and/or other file transmissions bank currently sends.
- Banks to be more responsive to BSB requests.”
Martin Postweiler of Merck says “Merck KGaA (doing business as EMD in North America) has made BSB capability a standard requirement in all Cash Management RfPs. In addition, we keep asking our existing core banks to provide an electronic reporting/invoicing with high priority in all relevant countries.
Merck also participated in the task force that prepared a potential 5th CGI MP Working Group to further harmonize the standard.
As we are currently in the scoping phase of replacing our TMS, the new system will ideally also process TWIST BSB files.
Furthermore, we strongly encourage other Corporates to talk their Banks into joining this initiative; it should be also in the bank’s own interest to exploit the benefits of harmonized and paperless billing/reporting systems.
Treasury is becoming more and more involved in strategic tasks as well as having to cope with more regulation. Low value, manual, paper based and intransparent processes should therefore urgently be looked at. TWIST BSB, together with other projects like eBAM, e-Invoicing or digital currencies will help improving those processes.”
Jonas Korte of Siemens Financial Services says “Siemens is now live with a software solution that has been rolled-out into its treasury community to handle and process electronic bank billings. Provision and ramp-up of billing files for the Siemens group is underway with a set of dedicated banking partners. We are looking forward and expecting other bank partners to join and support this effort to support an electronically readable and transparent invoicing process as soon as possible.
Initiatives like TWIST/camt.086 as well as the newly founded CGI workgroup to define a common standard with regards to electronic billings for banks and corporates set a strong basis to deepen the trust, reliability and efficiency in bank-to-corporate relationships. We like to encourage corporates and banks to join that endeavor of a substantially simplified billing process and lever the respective opportunities to the mutual benefit of the involved parties.“
News from the Vendors
Axletree says; “As Corporate treasury expands banking relationships coupled with global growth, forecasting and controlling bank fees is an important activity. Automating the tracking and reporting of bank fees using standards like BSB is the way forward.

“Chesapeake has experienced rapidly growing interest in international bank fee analysis over the past year. We believe that the release of global standards is responsible for a new awareness of this opportunity. As a result, Chesapeake’s SmartAnalysis system has dramatically increased processing volumes for TWIST files and international print image bank statement files. We have implemented fully automated scheduling and parsing for importing both these files types.
We are still awaiting the proliferation of ISO camt.086 files, along with widespread adoption of AFP Global Service Codes. But these developments will certainly follow as enhancements, with further standardization and simplification, of the processing.
A number of user oriented features have been added to SmartAnalysis, including bank ratings (Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s), pivoting cost spreadsheets (internal organization assignment versus banks), and earnings credit / net charge analysis.
Finally, we have released our Bank Account Management (BAM) processing modules, as components of both our SmartAnalysis Relationship Manager and our SmartTreasury treasury management solution.”

“Weiland Corporate Solutions, now a part of Fiserv continues to add to the companies using our BRMedge application. With more than 30 deployments of the BSB module, we have a great knowledge base of the statement delivery from all of the banks delivering using either of the BSB standards. BRMedge retrieves statement information from any version of the 822, both versions of the BSB and a variety of non-standard formats presented by banks not yet ready to adopt a global standard. The BRMedge system now supports the US and global AFP Codes fully and a license for use of the codes is delivered with every system. This gives customers the ability to fully utilize the AFP codes and build apples to apples matches for services across their banks. No longer are the companies reliant on the AFP code mapping performed individually by each bank.
Weiland recently completed camt.086 testing and consulting with one major bank, and has been engaged by another major bank to help develop their camt.086 offering.
The tenth generation of BRMedge is currently in testing and will be released to customers in early 2015. This latest version takes the automation processes even further and provides a fully cloud based platform that universally manages currencies, language and bank file formats. Weiland is also establishing a European presence through our London offices, which will allow European treasurers to benefit from the experience and expertise that we have in the bank fee monitoring space.”
