Register of Participants

The Register of Participants lists all the payment service providers (PSPs) who adhere to the EPC SEPA schemes.

Register of Participants

This is a key tool for any and Clearing and Settlement Mechanism (CSM) that needs to know which organisations are able to send and receive credit transfers and direct debits.

There is a Register of Participants for each scheme (the Credit Transfer, the SEPA Instant Credit Transfer, the SEPA Direct Debit Core and the SEPA Direct Debit Business-to-Business schemes). Only legal entities within SEPA that have adhered to the EPC schemes are included in the Register of Participants. Branches are not included, unless they are SEPA branches of a incorporated in a country that is outside the geographical scope of the SEPA schemes.

The EPC Register of Participants contains only reference BICs, which should not be used as routing BICs

The Business Identifier Codes (BICs) that are listed in the Register of Participants are reference BICs only (used to unambiguously identify the scheme participants adhering to the relevant scheme), and must not be relied upon as valid routing BICs. Any organisation using these BICs for routing rather than reference purposes may face difficulties when initiating or processing transactions.

When a scheme participant chooses a CSM, it provides its routing BICs (including those of its branches) to this organisation.

CSMs compliant with the schemes use the Register of Participants to check which are reachable in the context of SEPA transactions.

Schedule of updates to the Register

Scheme participants and CSMs seeking to ensure their systems have up-to-date statuses for all participating can find the planned updates of the Register of Participants below. The schedule also includes the deadlines for applicant scheme participants to submit their adherence packs for a given Register update publication.

In accordance with industry practice, the operational start date is the first Monday after the first full weekend of the month.
