Over 40 leading financial industry players support PRETA’s pan-European PSD2 access directory
Paris, 2nd October 2018 – PRETA announced today that over 40 major European financial institutions and service providers have signed up to fund and complete PRETA’s pan-European PSD2 access directory.
With the delivery of this directory, PRETA’s Open Banking Europe initiative is answering to the market need for a single, standardised, trusted and machine-readable repository of regulatory data related to third-party providers (TPPs). The directory is an important element in enabling access-to-account (XS2A) services. It will also provide operational data for all regulated account-servicing payment service providers (AS-PSPs) and TPPs in Europe as well as data on qualified trust service providers (QTSPs), which issue the PSD2 eIDAS certificates needed for the identification of TPPs.
