Our approach to the Payment Services Regulations 2009

The Payment Services Approach Document is aimed at helping firms navigate through the Payment Services Regulations (PSRs) and our relevant rules and guidance, and to understand our general approach in this area. It is aimed at firms that are, or are seeking to become, authorised or registered as payment institutions, and also credit institutions and e-money issuers, who must also comply with parts of the PSRs.
