paragraph 6.2 tells very clear how checkdigits are calculated and with that logic its not possible to get 00, 01, 99
and formal validator based on this http://www.tbg5-finance.org/?ibandocs.shtml
however the validation rule 6.1 could give 98-mod(IBAN;97) a 1 for IBAN's with
97 check digits and would return same with 00
98 check digits and would return same with 01
02 check digits and would return same with 99
However these are interesting example numbers IT01T36000032000A9H00000037
seems to be existing and published on a website http://www.beppegrillo.it/listeciviche/liste/desenzanodelgarda/2014/09/passeggiata-popolare-5-ottobre.html These all pass validation rule to be 1 but normal calculation of checkdigits would give 97 and 98 PL00168013108811808750900001

DE00 THET RUTH ISOU TTHE RE has the same length than any valid German IBAN. However it has 42 digits, so it no more fits into 128 bit. And Saudi Arabia has a BBAN of "2n,18c". This makes up a possible total length of 4+2+2+36 = 44 digits. So much to IPv6, it is even incapable to map all possible IBANs. 12:55, 15 August 2013 (UTC) 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:41, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
That is not a valid German IBAN account, since THET RUTH is required to be numeric. This means the total digits are 4+2+8+20 = 34 digits. A similar situation would be expected for Saudi Arabia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:25, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
What do you mean with "a similar situation would be expected for Saudi Arabia"? The argument by OP was that 128bit arithmetic does not suffice for a general IBAN. Proof: with 34 allowed alphanumeric digits in an IBAN, two of which can only be numeric (check digits), the resulting decimal number for checking could have up to (34-2)*2 + 2+1 = 66 (numeric) digits. Clearly, this doesn't fit into 128 bits, not even close. Indeed, the SWIFT IBAN registry v47, linked from this article, contains this example Malta IBAN: MT84MALT011000012345MTLCAST001S, which results in a 31+(2+4+7+1)=45 digit decimal integer. I have thus corrected the minimum integer arithmetic bits to 220 (=logb(10^66)). Marc Mutz (talk) 09:58, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
So what? The computation of the remainder mod 97 of an arbitrarily long decimal input string can be computed with an online algorithm ("online" here in its computational meaning, i.e., not that it uses the interwebs, but that it eats input digit by digit without storing it) using just 7 bits of storage (for the "current" remainder)--184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:23, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Can someone please update Kosovo? I would do it myself but I'm not familiar with IBAN codes or how to format it on the article. Country code XK: page 44. Regards IJA (talk) 17:19, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Done It's much easier than you might think - this was all it took! NebY (talk) 22:26, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Many companies and transactions require a “purpose of payment”/“payment reference” similar to the “For”/“memo” line on cheques. Is this part of the IBAN standard or SWIFT? I don’t see anything about it mentioned it either article. —Wiki Wikardo 16:15, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
The article doesn't explain the differences in the BBAN format between e.g. "4n,10n,2n" (Kosovo) and "16n" (Austria, ...). If there's a difference it should be explained in the article. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 13:11, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
