The Nordic Payments Council has initiated its first Open Consultation

As of June 13, The Nordic Payments Council (NPC) has invited members of the national clearing systems, end-users of payment services, authorities and other stakeholders to respond to NPC’s open consultation on its Credit Transfer and Instant Credit Transfer Schemes. The Open Consultation will continue until September 6, 2019.

The NPC is established as a separate non-profit association organisation by its founding members, the Nordic national bankers’ associations, one of them being the Swedish Bankers’ Association. The NPC will manage Nordic payment schemes in the future to facilitate payments within the Nordic countries. The main objective for the NPC is to contribute to harmonised payments in the Nordics.

This is the first open consultation performed by the NPC. The NPC Credit Transfer and Instant Credit Transfer Schemes are a set of rules, practices and standards to achieve interoperability for the provision and operation of credit transfers and instant credit transfers agreed at interbank level for DKK and SEK.

More details regarding the open consultation is found on the NPC webpage:
