The European Payments Council (EPC) has published a press release announcing the launch of consultations on possible modifications to the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) Credit Transfer and SEPA Direct Debit Rulebooks. The EPC has therefore published the following change request consultation documents:
- SEPA Direct Debit Business to Business Rulebook;
- SEPA Direct Debit Core Rulebook; and
- SEPA Credit Transfer Rulebook.
The deadline for responses to these Rulebooks is 15 August 2014. The EPC will then take forward proposed changes to the schemes that find broad acceptance and that are technically and legally feasible. After that, the EPC intends to publish its next generation of rulebooks and associated implementation guidelines in November 2014 to take effect in November 2015.
