PSD2 in a nutshell

An in-depth look at the new Directive

The primary goal of the Directive is to create a single integrated market for payment services through standardising the regulation for banks and for new PSPs, which are coming up due to the digital era. The PSD2 will break down the entry barriers helping to strengthen the system security, enabling new payment services, ensuring transparency and fair competition to the benefit of consumers.

PSD2 supports the change
