    It's a useful list but I'm not sure it would be possible to rely 100% on it, some banks use some codes for different things to other banks.

    Most of those codes are abbreviations but not acronyms.

    Collins: "a pronounceable name made up of a series of initial letters or parts of words"

    Oxford: "An abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word"

    Thus BACS is an acronym but APR isn't.
