The Scheme Technical Forum (ESTF) is made up of the representatives of technical players who provide services facilitating the processing of transactions under the schemes. Members of this forum include Clearing and Settlement Mechanism (CSM) organisations, technical solution providers and payment messaging services companies.
The ESTF held its eighth meeting on 08 March 2018. The approved agenda and minutes are available on this page.
During this meeting, the ESTF discussed in detail the various rulebook change requests which the received by the end of 2017. These change requests are subject to a public consultation from 13 March to 10 June 2018.
The ESTF further discussed the Inst scheme implementation status at that point in time. The main topics were the Inst scheme adherence status and projections, issues from scheme participants about the current Inst processing and the interoperability between Inst scheme-compliant CSMs.
There are still vacant seats among some categories of technical players. Application letters including an up-to-date CV in English should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
