London, 19 April 2017 – Although the revised Payment Services Directive was published more than a year ago, the market had to wait for the European Banking Authority’s regulatory technical standards to get details about the law’s implementation. The EBA recently published its final report on the (draft) RTS for strong customer authentication and common and secure communication, and this document will be effective in October 2018 at the earliest. What significant impacts will the RTS have on existing market practices in online banking and commerce?
Based on interviews with executives from banks, card networks, other financial service providers, industry organizations, and consultant firms, this report provides insight into the RTS for strong customer authentication and secure communication, and analyzes the business impact on the European payments market.
