The range of Bacs approved services has been introduced to help organisations make and receive payments as easily, securely and cost effectively as possible, assured in the knowledge that the approved/accredited third party services of software, bureaux services and training all meet the meticulous quality requirements developed by Bacs.
Bacs approved software
Only software solutions that have passed rigorous testing and approval processes are able to connect to Bacstel-IP for the Bacs service and/or Secure-IP for Faster Payments. Since Bacs approves all Bacstel-IP and Secure-IP software before it reaches the marketplace, users are reassured that the software has surpassed set quality standards.
Here is a list of all Bacs approved software.
Bacs approved bureaux
Over half of the organisations using the Bacs service make their payment submissions through our approved bureaux rather than submitting directly to Bacs. Bacs inspectors review the appropriateness of the bureaux to ensure they meet the standards set by the scheme.
Here is a list of Bacs approved bureaux.
Bacs accredited training
At Bacs we believe training can lead to substantial benefits for users of Direct Debit and Bacs Direct Credit. So we introduced Bacs accredited training, whereby providers of Bacs related training may apply to have their courses accredited. This ensures course content is up-to-date and relevant to user needs.
Here is a list of Bacs accredited training.
