The EU and the EPC (European Payments Council) are intent on using the XML format as a standard in European payment transactions. At the moment, efforts are being made to minimize the numerous different national variants of payment transaction solutions and ultimately to eliminate them completely. The XML format should replace all other formats in order to standardize the processing of transactions on a technical level Europe-wide. This format is to be introduced and accepted as a standard both in the interbank sector and by customers.
