The Policy Statement
A new regulatory framework for payment systems in the UK
The PSR Policy Statement sets out how we will regulate the payment systems industry to deliver better results for everyone who uses those systems.
The Policy Statement is the result of our extensive consultations with our stakeholders - from consumers, to businesses, payment service providers and the payment systems industry.
We are grateful for all the responses to our Consultation Paper, which have helped us arrive at our framework for the industry.
The Policy Statement contains our regulatory approach, the guiding principles we will follow and a clear set of policies, directions and guidance that clarifies what our regulation means for the industry.
