To help transfer electronic data messages compliant with the SuperStream Data and Payment Standard, gateway operators have established the Superannuation Transactions Network (STN).
Only gateway operators who have met the entry criteria, achieved gateway accreditation and met the legal requirements associated with the gateway operators group are able to send or receive messages through the network.
As part of this process, all gateway candidates are required to complete interoperability testing to demonstrate they have the technical capability to operate in the network.
The current interoperability testing period is now open and will close on 9 July 2014.
Testing must start by mid-May to allow adequate time for all processes to be completed by the closing date.
To maintain stability and reduce risk to the network during implementation of the contribution standard and induction process, the next scheduled test window is expected to commence in February 2015.
