The SEPA Proxy Lookup (SPL) scheme rulebook version 2.0

On 5 March 2020 the European Payments Council ( ) published version 2.0 of the Proxy Lookup ( ) scheme rulebook which comes into effect on 1 June 2020.

The updated 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 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 scheme rulebook change management process include:

  • The email address and reachability check as optional features in the 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 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 ( ) in March 2018 as the preferred service provider following a request for proposal procedure launched by the Mobile Proxy Forum in December 2017. Parties interested in participating in the service are kindly invited to contact Mr Henrik Hodam at equensWorldline ([email protected]).
