The EPC SEPA payment schemes are updated every two years in order to reflect the market needs and the evolution of technical standards.
A SEPA payment scheme rulebook change management cycle had been organised throughout 2021 and 2022 and ended with the publication of the 2023 SCT and SDD rulebooks on 25 May 2022.
In line with its commitment to transparency, the EPC published all comments received during the public consultation, as well as the position of the EPC multi-stakeholder groups on these comments.
The next payment scheme rulebook change management cycle will take place in 2024. Stakeholders are invited to submit change requests to the SCT and SDD rulebooks by 31 December 2023 by completing a dedicated template. The received change requests will be considered for the rulebook versions and associated implementation guidelines to be published in November 2024 to take effect in November 2025.
