#FIU onboarding and go live

To be onboarded on the Account Aggregator ecosystem as an FIU (Financial information User), entities must undergo certification as laid out by Sahamati (Central registry for Account Aggregator ecosystem participants).

#Certification by Sahamati

Certification by Sahamati is done as a part of onboarding, in order to—

  • Ensure FIUs adhere to technical standards prescribed by ReBIT (RBI’s technical wing)
  • Ensure all AAs, FIUs and FIPs are interoperable
  • Build trust amongst participants of the AA ecosystem as well as end users

Setu, as a Technical Service Provider (TSP), absorbs the certification complexity and completes the onboarding process on behalf of the FIU. To complete the certification, Setu has partnered with Aujas, who is a Sahamati empanelled certifier.
