IBAN Checker & Generator

Validating and Generating International Bank Account Numbers

With the advent of IBANs on 14 August 1999 as numbers for international bank transfers it might happen that an IBAN commuicated to you contains typos - IBANs can have a length of up to 34 alphanumeric digits. This program will check the integrity of such a number.

IBANs consist of 2 alpha characters (country code), a 2-digit numerical checksum and the BBAN (Basic Bank Account Number). The BBAN consists of a country code, a code consisting of numbers and/or alpha characters which are bank specific, and your ordinary bank account number. This program can generate the IBAN from any BBAN.
