Agenda and minutes of the 7th meeting of the EPC Scheme End-User Forum (August 2018)

The Scheme End-User Forum (SEUF) is composed of representatives of European associations of end-users of the schemes, such as consumers, (e-) merchants and corporate treasurers.

The SEUF held its seventh meeting on 23 August 2018. The approved agenda and minutes are available on this page.

During this meeting, the SEUF agreed on a formal SEUF position for each 2018 change request which the had received by the end of 2017. All received change requests had been subject to a public consultation from March to June 2018. 

For defining its position, the SEUF considered the submitted input from the various stakeholders during the public consultation and the formal change proposals formulated by the working group responsible for the maintenance and the further evolution of the Credit Transfer ( ) and Direct Debit ( ) scheme rulebooks.

The SEUF further discussed the Instant Credit Transfer ( ) scheme implementation status at that point in time. The main topics were the scheme adherence status and projections, and current obstacles for payment end-users to use the scheme.

The SEUF also shared its view on the interest from payment end-users in electronic mandates for collections and in which direction the schemes should evolve to meet future market needs after 2020.

There are still vacant seats for European associations of end-users of the schemes. Application letters including an up-to-date CV in English should be sent to [email protected].
