published on 26 July 2013
On 24th of July 2013 the European Commission published a proposal for a new Directive on payment services in the internal market (PSD2), repealing the previous payment services Directive from 13th of November 2007 (2007/64/EC – PSD1). The draft creates, among numerous other proposals, a new category of institutions requiring authorisation. The provision predominantly targets services such as German Sofort Überweisung, Dutch iDeal or Swedish Trustly.
