    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, Electronic Money Directive, Anti-Money Laundering Directive, Cross-Border Payments Regulation, Single European Payments Area, General Data Protection Regulation, Anti-Money Laundering Directives, Digital Single Market, Settlement Finality Directive.
