Initially, the Certification Program will have a pilot period for three to six months which will involve collecting industry feedback both on the program and test scripts. Goals of the program include: reducing the cost and effort to implement and use the FIX protocol; promoting the quality and consistency of FIX implementations; and streamlining the process of implementing new FIX counterparty relationships.
