Join the IFX Community!

Accelerate your development. Increase compliance. Respond to customer demands.

Join the IFX Forum as a Guest, Subscriber, or Member.

A Community Forum

The IFX Forum is a community-supported organization. Financial institutions, technology vendors and others interested in accelerating their financial messaging applications join together to access and improve the IFX Standard.

3 Levels of Participation

Guests gain basic access to the Standard for evaluation.

Subscribers enjoy additional benefits that help with development.

Members drive the future of the standard and determine strategy.

Your Voice Is Needed

Regardless of level, the IFX Community welcomes you and your organization. Join us, and participate in the world’s most agile financial standard. We need your voice!

Guest Access to BMS and Community Forum

When you register for access to the BMS, you also get the benefit of ongoing access to the IFX Community Forum, where practitioners exchange views and provide ongoing advice arising from practical experience. As you peruse the BMS, be sure to take advantage of that forum and all of the material available freely on our resources page.
For regular users of the BMS we recommend adding the PDF Subscriber option. This gives you access to an off-line PDF version of the standard in addition to the on-line navigation tools. Developers are best served with an Advanced Subscriber option.
