The SEPA Request-to-Pay (SRTP) scheme is infrastructure agnostic. Each participant is free to arrange the way the SRTP messages are exchanged with other scheme participants and may use technical solution providers (TSPs), acting as a gateway, to send/receive SRTP messages in accordance with the rules of the scheme.
A TSP does not necessarily need to undergo the SRTP homologation, but if it does successfully, it becomes a 'Referenced Technical Solution Provider' (RTSP) and its clients will be eligible for a simplified homologation.
The SRTP homologation process is outsourced by the EPC to a third party, the homologation body. The EPC Board, following a request of proposal has formally selected the Sopra Steria Group as the homologation body for the SRTP Scheme.
The TSP wishing to be homologated are invited to announce their compliance with the SRTP scheme by filling out this disclosure letter and then contacting directly the SRTP homologation body.
There are twenty homologation requirements applicable for the TSPs.
Technical Solution Providers are invited to disclose their intent to become an SRTP scheme compliant TSP.
This letter serves as a model letter to be completed on an organisation's own stationary prior to signing and sending it to the EPC.
A list of SRTP scheme-compliant Technical Solution Providers is published on this page.
