PSD2 & Next Steps Implementations
Creating an open and secure market for retail payments in Europe
The PSD2 implementation date will be exactly two months behind us at EPS 2018. But will the European Parliament and the European Council have adopted the Regulatory Technical Standards on Strong Customer Authentication and Secure Communication in the meantime (deadline 27 Feb)? And where will market participants stand with the new European Group of Experts on API standards?
One thing is certain: we will still be in a transition period… with lots of legal ambiguity! Not to mention the GDPR coming into force on May 25, which is looming over PSD2.
