Our Product Management team have confirmed that there will be no changes necessary to Blackbaud products for the SEPA changes. 
  • The only mandatory change in the SDD Rulebook modification changes for November 2016 involve amendments to debtor account details.
  • The Raiser's Edge and Blackbaud CRM do not handle amendments to SEPA mandates.
  • The Raiser's Edge and Blackbaud CRM return false for mandate amendments and simply create a new mandate for amendments made. 
  • This ultimately means that there are no mandatory SEPA changes needed for The Raiser's Edge and Blackbaud CRM at this time.
