Payment standards are an underlying enabler of interoperability, innovation and competition. They can help to promote best practice, increase scalability and facilitate end user choice while lowering barriers to entry and promoting competition.

Following the investigation of UK Finance’s Standards Strategy Group, an opportunity to coordinate the currently fragmented landscape of payment standards has been proposed. The Payments Standards Engagement Forum has been proposed to assist in the market’s development of new standards and facilitate standard change across the standards developed by the likes of Pay.UK, UK Finance, the OBIE, EMVCo, the international card schemes and the Bank of England.

With the industry being driven to closer collaboration and coordination across previously different payment rails, the industry is now at a tipping point where closer collaboration and coordination is essential to facilitate the continued evolution of UK payments and to realise untapped opportunities.

• Understand how additional coordination can benefit the industry in its creation of effective and interoperable standards.
• Discuss the opportunities presented by the Payments Standards Engagement Forum.
• Consider how payments standards can enable better outcomes for the industry and customers.
