It is fast becoming a mandatory requirement for Financial Institutions to be able to process ISO 20022 MX messages. The standard is also now being adopted by many global domestic clearing systems.

SWIFT have now confirmed their plans to phase out the MT1, MT2 and MT9 series of FIN messages in favour of the ISO 20022.The end-date to enable full ISO 20022 for cross-border payments remains as originally planned, November 2025 however the original start date has been moved back from November 2021 to November 2022.
