Course Summary:

The Payment Services Directive (PSD) provides the legal foundation for the creation of a single market for payments in the European Union. The PSD aims to establish a modern and comprehensive set of rules applicable to all payment services in the European Union and to provide the legislative framework for the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) initiative. The aim of SEPA being to enable payments in euros to move freely between users in the EU, wherever they are located. 

The objective is to make cross-border payments as easy, efficient and as secure as 'national' payments within a Member State. The PSD also seeks to improve competition by opening up payment markets to new regulated entrants.

This course aims to outline the main requirements of the Payments Services Directive as transposed into Ireland by the Payment Services Regulations in 2009. It looks at the technical provisions as well as best practice for implementation of the requirement.
