SWIFT FIN message

SWIFT FIN is a message type (MT) that transmits financial information from one financial institution to another.

Each SWIFT message is represented by a three-digit number. The first number identifies the category to which the message belongs. The second and third numbers identify the message type.

Each SWIFT message uses a format that has five possible blocks:

Basic header block - contains basic header information.

Application header block - contains header information about the message itself.

User header block - identifies the version of the message standard.

Text block - contains the text of the SWIFT message.

Trailers block - contains special handling conditions, instructions or additional information.

Hi,

Can somebody throw light on the below.

"Due to the blocking nature 
of the central RMA check on the FIN main message flow, SWIFT will provide an additional 3 weeks to synchronize the central relationships.

SWIFT will continue to monitor FIN traffic and contact customers that will be impacted due to a de-synchronized relationship."
