Customer Test Centre

To ensure the stable and reliable operation of its payment processing and account management applications, the Bundesbank carries out a wide range of test activities with its customers.

The aim of this authorisation and conformance testing is to check the communication channels between the Bundesbank and its customers and to verify the data formats used. These checks are carried out by the Bundesbank’s Customer Test Centre.

In addition to carrying out customer tests with banks and non-banks, the Bundesbank provides technical as well as procedure-specific advice and support.

Customers can register for the Bundesbank to test their procedure using the online form found on this page.

Those registering for the first time will usually receive the relevant certification by post or via e-mail.
