The European Payments Council ( ) launches today a 90-day public consultation on the draft rulebook it developed for its new Request-to-Pay ( ) scheme.
The scheme, which is based on the RTP specifications document produced by the RTP Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG RTP), covers the set of operating rules and technical elements (including messages) that allow a Payee (Creditor) to request the initiation of a payment from a Payer in a wide range of physical or online use cases. It is envisaged that the scheme will evolve further over time to support more elaborated functionalities.
All interested stakeholders are invited to participate in the public consultation by sending their feedback on the proposed rulebook via email to [email protected] by 30 August 2020 (midnight Brussels time) at the latest. The publication of the formal first version of the rulebook is foreseen by end November 2020 (subject to Board approval).
