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.

For a number of reasons, including late transposition of PSD2, three competent authorities (Ireland, Romania and Sweden) have not submitted any data to the central register of the EBA yet. We expect the data from these competent authorities to be included in the register soon. In addition, due to the large volume of 100,000+ entities in category 6 (Agents), several authorities will be uploading this specific data set incrementally throughout March 2019.
