Payment Services Directive

The European Payment Services Directive (2007/64/CE) came into effect on 1 November 2009. Its aims are to regulate payment service providers across Europe and to strengthen the safeguards for all, especially for the merchants and their customers. The directive simultaneously aims to ensure high standards at all European payment institutions, including such matters as customer due diligence (fraud risk and anti-money laundering procedures), professional standards of security and confidentiality, and prudent governance with the organisation and procedures in place to safeguard client funds and personal data. Thus a modern payment institution is subject to the same rigorous control and regulation as a traditional bank. The directive has come into force in all member states of the EU.
