The Bank of England has today, in conjunction with Pay.UK, issued an open call for interest for members of the payments industry wishing to join a newly created Standards Advisory Panel. The Panel will be jointly run by the Bank and Pay.UK. It will comprise a senior group of stakeholders representing the payments industry. As such, we are seeking diverse representation from Payment Service Providers, technology firms and end-users, such as businesses. Members of the Panel will have an opportunity to influence changes across wholesale and retail payments, shaping how benefits for the UK are maximised while ensuring changes are proportionate. The focus of the panel will be on the implementation of ISO 20022, however, will also cover other payments standards for the UK.
Those interested in becoming a member of the Panel should submit an application by Monday 10 December 2018.
