The European Banking Authority has launched its central register under PSD2, providing information on thousands of payment and electronic money institutions as well as 150,000 agents.

The free electronic register lets anyone see the identity of authorised payment and electronic money institutions, as well as the country of establishment of these providers and the services they provide and information on passporting - the services provided in host member states.

Adam Farkas, executive director, EBA, says: "The EBA has worked hard to provide a freely accessible and reliable source of key information for market participants across the single market that will facilitate the roll out of PSD2, support the provision of the newly regulated payments services and improve transparency for consumers in the EU".
