On 5 March 2020 the European Payments Council (EPC) published version 2.0 of the SEPA Proxy Lookup (SPL) scheme rulebook which comes into effect on 1 June 2020.
The updated SPL rulebook which can be downloaded below consists of a set of rules, practices and standards that makes it possible to operate, join and participate in the SPL scheme. The eligibility criteria to join the scheme, including a template adherence agreement, are also included in the rulebook.
The main changes resulting from the 2019 SPL scheme rulebook change management process include:
- The email address and reachability check as optional features in the SPL scheme.
- The specification of a maximum liability amount equal to the fee paid to the Responding Registry Provider (RRP) for the provision of the data.
- The possibility for an SPL scheme participant in its role of RRP to charge a fee in exchange of services received by the Initiating Registry Provider (IRP).
EquensWorldline was appointed by the Mobile Proxy Forum (MPF) in March 2018 as the preferred SPL service provider following a request for proposal procedure launched by the Mobile Proxy Forum in December 2017. Parties interested in participating in the SPL service are kindly invited to contact Mr Henrik Hodam at equensWorldline ([email protected]).
(Note: A legal entity needs to be approved as SPL scheme adherent in order to be able to participate in the SPL service.)
