The EBA’s letter of complaint on changes to the RTS on SCA and CSC

On 27 November 2017 the European Commission adopted Regulatory Technical Standards (‘RTS’) on strong customer authentication (‘SCA’) and common and secure communication (‘CSC’), supplementing Article 98(1) of the revised Payment Services Directive (‘PSD2’). The RTS were based on draft standards produced by the European Banking Authority (‘EBA’). The Commission made what it termed “limited substantive amendments” to the EBA’s version of these important RTS, and the Commission’s adopted version has gone forward to the Council of the EU and the European Parliament. The Commission’s amendments have led to some concerns from the EBA, which were expressed by Andrea Enría, Chairman of the EBA, in a letter published on 26 January 2018. Tim Wright, Partner at Pillsbury LLP, explains the process taken in creating the RTS and the EBA’s concerns about the amendments.
