TO : All PESONet participating banks/Institutions
RE : REMINDER ON SENDING OFI REFERENCE NUMBERS
1. Further to PESONet Memo Circular No. 20-033 issued last October 29, 2020, we wish to remind participants that are
already implementing the Enhanced Interface File (EIF) format to kindly send OFI reference numbers that do not
exceed 16 characters until the full implementation of EIF come February 1, 2021.
2. As mentioned in the said Memo Circular, support for the EPCS Format File, and PhilPaSS REMIT (Outward) file
continues to be available hence, sending OFI reference numbers that is more than 16 characters pose operational
concerns or issues particularly for participants that are not yet on EIF.
3. We appeal to all participants already on EIF for their full support and cooperation.
4. Thank you and wishing you all a happy, prosperous New Year.
