T2 (replacing TARGET2) will go-live on 20 March 2023
The ECB’s Governing Council has announced that the launch of T2, its new real-time gross settlement system which will replace TARGET2, will go ahead as planned on 20 March 2023.
The go-live date was previously pushed out from 21 November 2022 to 20 March 2023 to ensure greater system stability and user readiness, and to facilitate as smooth a transition as possible to the new platform.
“The T2-T2S consolidation project will consolidate both the technical and the functional aspects of TARGET2 and TARGET2-Securities (T2S). The current real-time gross settlement system, TARGET2, will be replaced by a new system, T2, which will optimise liquidity management across all TARGET Services and offer enhanced and modernised services to the market.”
