New Payments Architecture (NPA) Design Hub


The New Payments Architecture (NPA) Design Hub is co-chaired by Otto Benz, Director of Strategic Payments, Virgin Money, and Paul Horlock, Head of Payments, Nationwide.

Scope and Deliverables

The NPA Design Hub has been established by the Forum to progress the detailed design of the New Payments Architecture ahead of the handover to the New Payment System Operator (NPSO) by the end of 2017. 


Membership of the Working Structures is open to Members of the Payments Community. You can find more information about joining here.

Vendor Advisory Group

A 'Vendor Advisory Group' has been created by the Hub to provide a way for vendors to understand and inform the development of the NPA by providing their unique subject matter expertise. 

This group does not constitute all payment vendors and so is open to any vendors who wish to join. The Terms of Reference are available here and you can register interest in joining here
