X9 – An Introduction to the Financial Industry Global Standards

Welcome to X9’s financial industry standards!

X9 standards make an enormous contribution to our industry—even though the contribution is often invisible, or taken for granted. Every day, both industry and the public come in contact with financial standards for example, the size of a paper check, protocols for messaging, electronic security systems, and paperless contracts are just a few. Standards simplify our lives, increase productivity and allow interoperability and straight through processing.

The Accredited Standards Committee X9, Inc. or more simply X9, takes the lead in developing the technical financial industry standards we need to act efficiently and competitively in the market place.
