How PSR Panel works

How the PSR Panel works

Input from industry experts helps inform our work

The Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) Panel is established by statute and is independent to the PSR. The Panel's role is to contribute towards the effective development of the PSR's strategy and policy and offer advice and early input on the PSR's work.

The panel is made up of members drawn from payments system operators, payments service providers, infrastructure and technology providers and service users including consumer, large and small business representatives. 

The Panel

  • provides feedback on the PSR’s work
  • brings forward relevant issues for discussion
  • identifies areas for research
  • considers how best the PSR can meet its objectives

The views of the Panel are independent of the PSR and the panel is assisted by a secretariat team within the FCA.
