Results of the July 2012 Newsletter poll

The European Payments Council () is encouraging readers to provide their feedback on the content of the newsletter to help ensure that we continue to meet the information needs of its audience. With the July 2012 edition, we included a poll designed to identify the Single Euro Payments Area () and related topics readers are particularly interested in today. 275 readers participated in the poll, which was open until 30 September 2012. We also invited readers to share proposals for subject matters that were not listed in the poll, by posting a comment to the related article included in the July 2012 Newsletter edition (see 'related links' below) or, alternatively, send an email to the Secretariat by clicking on the 'feedback' icon at the top of the page. No suggestions for topics other than those listed in the poll were received.

The feedback confirms the preferences which readers articulated previously: Newsletter readers are particularly interested in information on the Credit Transfer () and Direct Debit (SDD) Schemes, followed by news on political, regulatory and legal developments impacting the process. The Newsletter will therefore continue to focus on these topics.
