Register of payment and electronic money institutions under PSD2

To increase transparency and ensure a high level of consumer protection within the European Single market, the European Banking Authority (EBA) established a central register that contains information about payment and electronic money institutions authorised or registered within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area countries (EEA).

The register is established based on the requirement of Article 15(1) of Directive (EU) 2015/2366 on payment services in the internal market (PSD2), as well as the supplementing Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/410 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/411 of 29 November 2018, which are based on the RTS and ITS on the EBA Register under PSD2 published by the EBA in December 2017.

National competent authorities provide the information contained in the central register of the EBA and are responsible for its accuracy and keeping that information up-to-date. The information on the central register of the EBA is updated regularly by national competent authorities, at least once per day, subject to changes in their national registers.

Public users can search the central register of the EBA free of charge, as well as download the whole content of the register directly from this website.

In accordance with Article 11 of PSD2, granting of authorisation to payment institutions and electronic money institutions remains under the remit of the national competent authorities.

Disclaimer: The present Register has been set up by the EBA solely on the basis of information provided by national competent authorities of the EEA Member States. Therefore, unlike national registers under PSD2, this Register has no legal significance and confers no rights in law. If an unauthorised institution is inadvertently included in the Register, its legal status is in no way altered; similarly, if an institution has inadvertently been omitted from the Register, the validity of its authorisation will not be affected.

With regard to any content in the field ‘Name of the institutions' that describes the ‘legal form' of the institution, it should be noted that such content is in most cases untranslatable and that any terminological similarities between two such entries are not to be taken to indicate that the legal status is the same.

The European Banking Authority is responsible only for the accurate reproduction of the information received by competent authorities for each natural or legal person included in the register, while responsibility for the accuracy of that information lies with the competent authorities at national level.
