    Goals / Remit

    The European Payment Institutions Federation (EPIF) was created in July 2011 to represent the interests of the non-banking Payment Institutions at the European level, bringing together a broad range of members and creating the key link between the non-bank payment sector and European regulators. Directly and indirectly EPIF represents more than 400 payment institutions and innovative payment providers in Europe covering a range of business models. The Federation has grown from strength to strength and provides representatives in the European Payments Council, is a member of the Euro Retail Payments Board, as well as participating actively in the regulatory debates impacting the European payment sector. It is committed to the development of a single European payments market for EU citizens. It actively promotes innovation, competition and quality of payment services across the EU.

    Main EU files targeted

    EPIF follows all EU policy initiatives impacting the payments sector, including regulation, standard setting, compliance and EU initiatives on e-commerce, FinTech and the Digital Single Market. EPIF is also engaged in EU tax policies, consumer policy, financial crime, sanctions policy and sustainability.
