The Dutch Payments Association has decided to officially join the Berlin Group as a participant.
Berlin Group is very pleased with the additional commitment expressed by the Dutch Payments Association to contribute to the cooperative standardisation efforts. With the many changes that the European payments landscape is going through, the participants in Berlin Group believe that European agreed standards and open, widely supported technical agreements are crucial for a more harmonised, innovative and competitive market for payments in the European Union. Berlin Group knows the Dutch Payments Association already as an active contributor to the Berlin Group NextGenPSD2 Taskforce, representing the interests of the Dutch community in development of European standards that enable accessing bank accounts under the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2).
Berlin Group looks very much forward to increased and close collaboration with the Dutch Payments Association to further drive and improve open and transparent European payment standards on all prevailing Berlin Group themes.
