PSD2 at a glance
Payment Service Directive 2 (PSD2) is the second revised directive of an existing Payment Service Directive from 2007. The Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) of PSD2 requires strong customer authentication using common and secure open standards of communication between all parties involved, to support Open Banking.
As from September of 2019 all EU financial institutions ensure that Payment Service Providers (PSPs) or Third-Party Providers (TPPs) can access their customer account data by using secure website certificates (QWAC).
All regulated entities that use APIs in order to provide account information services and/or to initiate payments, must be registered to a National Competent Authority (NCA) and need a Qualified Website (QWAC) and/or Qualified Seal (QSeal) Certificate to access the financial institution’s account data.
