The European Payments Council (EPC) Payment Scheme Management Rules contain descriptions of the organisation, structure, rules, and processes that make up the scheme management of the EPC payment schemes.

Such processes cover administration and compliance, and change management, including structured dialogue with stakeholders.

On 28 March 2023, the EPC published the first version of the 2023 One-Leg Out Instant Credit Transfer (OCT Inst) rulebook.

This new EPC payment scheme rulebook required the renaming of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) Payment Scheme Management Rules into EPC Payment Scheme Management Rules. 

Version 5.0 of the Rules applies to the OCT Inst rulebook as of 01 June 2023 and to the four SEPA payment schemes as of 28 November 2023.
