EBA Draft Regulatory Technical Standards on Strong Customer Authentication and Secure Communication

22-03-2017

Art. 98 PSD2 mandated the European Banking Authority (EBA) to prepare draft Regulatory Technical Standards on strong customer authentication and secure communication (RTS on SCA&SC) in close cooperation with the ECB. After extensive consultation, the EBA finalised the draft on 23 February 2017 in the light of the feedback received. The final draft RTS balances the possibility for new providers and new payment services, with the introduction of a framework that ensures common IT approaches which ensure a high level of security, e.g. by proper authentication of the payer.
