Hexdecimal representation

For a conversion from hex to decimal one may need to add leading zeros, i.e. knowledge of the length of the decimal IBAN is necessary.

16 digit hex

Numeric BBAN of up to 19 digits can be converted to 16 digit BBAN in hex.

  • 9999 9999 9999 9999 9999 (20n, 99999999999999999999) is 56BC 75E2 D630 FFFF F (17h, 56BC75E2D630FFFFF)
  • FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF (16h, FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF) is 1844 6744 0737 0955 1615 (20n, 18446744073709551615)
  • Eleven countries use between 16 and 19 digits:
16	 BS, AT, EE, LT
17	 HR, CR
18	 DE, ME, RS
19	 AE, IL

20 digit hex

  • FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF (20h, FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF) is 1208 9258 1961 4629 1747 0617 5 (25n, 1208925819614629174706175)
