Developed by the ad-hoc multi-stakeholder group (MSG) on Mobile Initiated Credit Transfers (MSCT), including Instant Credit transfers ( Inst) (MSG MSCT), the draft MSCT Interoperability Implementation Guidelines (IIGs) (including Inst) are now published for a 3-month public consultation.
MSG MSCT IIGs mainly aims:
- through the description of various MSCT use cases to provide an insight into the main issues related to the initiation of Inst transfers in different payment contexts such as person-to-person, consumer-to-business (retail payments including both in-store and m-commerce payments) and business-to-business payments;
- next to the MSCT transaction aspects such as payer identification/authentication, transaction authentication, risk management and payer/beneficiary acknowledgements and notification messages, to focus on the technology and security used in the Customer-to- Account Servicing Payment Service Providers (ASPSP) space, since the Inst and transaction as such have already been specified in the respective rulebooks.
- To specify various security guidelines for MSCTs (e.g. MSCT app, CDUVM, etc.).
- To identify the main interoperability issues and barriers detected for MSCTs for a pan-European reach.
By developing these interoperability implementation guidelines, the multi-stakeholder group aims to contribute to a competitive MSCT market, by providing the different stakeholders with an insight into the different service, technical and security aspects involved. The document could serve as a reference basis for making certain implementation choices.
