The documentation applies to both: Sandbox and production environments.

Sandbox
The Sandbox is a test environment for TPPs that is mostly identical to production environment.
Every TPP gets a dedicated test data. Sandbox simulator will simulate the execution of the transactions posted and will update customers’ account balances. At any time, system state can be reset to the starting point. Access to the test data is provided through the Sandbox user’s menu item. Continuing with the process, users need to add an application to get the access credentials for the API.
