Further information


PSD2 is a Payment Service directive (version 2) and is a key piece of regulation related to payments in Europe and rolling out on a global scale. It aims to increase competition in the already very competitive payments sector by including new types of payments services as well as enhancing customer protection, security and choice.

Open Banking is the UK version of PSD2. The difference is that whilst PSD2 requires banks to open up their data to third parties, Open Banking dictates that they do so in a standard format. This makes it much easier to use, so should allow start-ups and tech divisions to create innovative new products.

This piece of legislation is a significant step towards a single digital market in Europe (cool, but still what’s it got to do with me?) PSD2 is the regulation that all payments service providers must be compliant to operate in the EU. In other words, if you are offering an account for day to day use, then you need to have Open Banking enabled on your product.

It set out common legal framework for businesses and consumers when making and receiving payments within the European Economic Area. Programmes need to enable third party access via secure API’s which Pannovate can provide via our third-party provider.
