Welcome to X9

The Accredited Standards Committee X9 Financial Industry Standards Inc. or more simply X9, is a leader in developing domestic and international open consensus standards for the financial services industry. Our mission is to develop, establish, maintain and promote standards for the Financial Services Industry that facilitates delivery of financial services and products in the United States and around the world.

Daily, people come in contact with or experience the benefits of  X9’s financial standards – the layout and subsequent processing of a paper check, protection of PINs, protocols for financial related messaging, electronic security systems, tracking of stock and bond transactions and electronic contracts are just a few. For individuals, these standards simplify our lives and provide new financial related options and functions.  For companies, these standards protect information, allow interoperability, increase productivity and allow higher levels of automation.

At X9, representatives from our over 100 member companies develop ANSI and ISO approved financial standards with a goal to protect critical information and improve the reliability and efficiency of the domestic and global financial services industry.  Information about our standards is available under the above menu item “Standards”.  We are always looking for those that wish to be part of developing domestic and international standards for the financial services industry.  If you have any questions, please contact us using the above “Contact” menu item.
