Currency, fund and precious metal codes. ISO 4217 currency codes are being used to represent currencies in terms of codes. More commonly, currencies are being represented in 2 different ways. The one method is representing currency in an alphabetic code of 3 letters. While the other method is representing a currency with a numeric code of s3 digits. However, the most recent edition in this regard is ISO 4217:2015. While the main purpose of ISO 4217:2015 is to establish the codes, which have been recognized at international level to represent currencies in a more effective way. Representing the currency name by using a currency code can bring multiple benefits. Because these codes are being recognized in every corner of the world.
Amendments can be made in ISO 4217:2015 periodically. Maintenance of ISO 4217 codes is as necessary as its amendments and update. Therefore, these changes can be managed by the maintenance agency’s Secretariat. This process will be done on behalf of the Swiss Association for Standardization by the SIX Interbank Clearing Ltd in this case.
For a number of international standards which have been developed, ISO technical committees are required to view their implementation and updating. Even more, a competent body which contains the requisite infrastructure to ensure effective and efficient use of these international agreements also needed. These competent bodies are being designated by International Standard Organization to serve as registration authorities and maintenance agencies. These registration authorities are basically meant to maintain these standards as well as to refine or extend the standard updates as per needs of the time.
Keep in mind the fact that concerned detailed information for every standard can be obtained by its respective secretariat only. However, you can find the details of registration authority and maintenance agencies here with ease.
