    Main EU files targeted

    Our key file is the effort to bring transparency to international payments, so that consumers know what it costs to use their own money.

Our focus areas include: The Payment Services Directive & Regulation, Cross-Border Payments Regulation, Single European Payments Area Regulation, General Data Protection Regulation, Anti-Money Laundering Directives, Digital Single Market, Settlement Finality Directive, Instant Payments Regulation
