What is a “validation” request?

A validation request is an automated check of an IBAN number which returns an indication of whether a provided number could be an actual IBAN. It checks for the following conditions:

  • Is the country indicator valid?
  • If the country indicator is valid:
    • Is the bank part of a correct length for the country?
    • Is the branch part of a correct length for the country?
    • Is the account part of a correct length for the country?
    • Is the IBAN checksum correct?
    • Where possible: is the country-specific checksum related to the bank/branch/account combination¬† correct?
The response to a validation request does NOT indicate that the provided IBAN is an actual, live bank account.
No charges apply to a validation request.
