Project Regulator

Project Regulator is supported by our Benefactor:

Mission Statement: To engage with regulatory bodies to promote and champion the concerns of EPA members in current and future regulation, and drives change through the development of a fairer regulatory landscape for payments companies.

Project Regulator focuses on shaping and forming regulation around payments and the payments industry in the UK to resolve the concerns and problems faced by our members. Project Regulator aims to ensure that the UK becomes a nurturing environment for developing and established payments companies and maintain the UK’s thriving payments ecosystem.

Through a unified voice of our members, the EPA aims to influence regulatory and government bodies to shape regulation and influence legislation that fits the needs of our members and provides an environment that enables the growth and proliferation of payments and PayTech organisations.

 

Strategic focus in 2019

  • Revision of previous EPA Payments Glossary; updated to reflect new terminology
  • Launch of EPA Consultation Registry: compiling all payments-specific consultations and highlighting consultations that the Project Regulator team recommends that all EPA members provide a response – including opportunities to submit further consultations to the registry and to request guidance from Project Regulator team
  • Enhance communication approach between EPA members and industry critical stakeholders (regulators, government and oversight bodies) with key stakeholders (e.g. FCA, PRA, EBA) to ensure that EPA provides an influential voice for the payments industry in shaping regulation and legislation
  • Continued collaboration with Open Banking Implementation Entity and providing support to EPA members on opportunities to engage with the body
  • Provide guidance and thought leadership regarding the regulatory and operational impact of Brexit upon the payments industry
  • Provide education to EPA members regarding ongoing Pay.UK developments
