SEPA Direct Debit (SDD)

2015 SDD Rulebooks

  

In November 2014, the European Payments Council (EPC) published updated and enhanced versions of the SEPA Credit Transfer (SCT) and SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) Rulebooks, i.e. the SCT Rulebook version 8.0, SDD Core Rulebook version 8.0 and SDD Business to Business (B2B) Rulebook version 6.0.

The 2015 SDD Rulebooks have been updated to include amended Scheme Management Internal Rules

On 3 April 2015, the EPC published the SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and the SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1 which have been updated to include amended Scheme Management Internal Rules (SMIRs). Amendments to the SMIRs are of a purely administrative nature and have no operational impact whatsoever. Consequently, the SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and the SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1 remain unchanged from a functional or technical point of view compared to the previous versions.

For an overview of changes introduced into the SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and the SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1 compared to the previous versions, refer to Annex III of the SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and of the SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1, respectively.

On this page, you find the links to the SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and the SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1 and associated implementation guidelines to take effect on 22 November 2015.

 

The SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1 will then remain in effect until 19 November 2016. To view the SDD Rulebook versions to take effect on 20 November 2016, refer to this EPC Website page: 2016 SDD Rulebooks.
 

The implementation guidelines relevant to the SDD Core Rulebook version 8.1 and the SDD B2B Rulebook version 6.1 are based on the 2009 version of ISO 20022.

In accordance with industry best practice, payment service providers and their suppliers have sufficient time to address rulebook updates prior to them taking effect. To learn more about the scheme change management cycle, refer to this EPC Website page: SCT / SDD Rulebook Release Management.
