Payment Services Directive (PSD) 2

June 21st, 2018

The original Payment Services Directive (PSD) was first adopted in 2007 and became effective in Ireland and the UK in 2009.  This is a European Regulation which is given effect in all EU member states through local implementing legislation.  The Payment Services Directive provides the legal foundation for an EU single market for payments.  The objective is to provide safer and more innovative payment services across the European Union by creating common rules for certain types of electronic payments such as card payments and online payments.

The second Payment Services Directive (PSD2), which came into effect on the 13th of January 2018 simply evolves the rules set out in the PSD1. In general terms these updates aim to:

  • Facilitate a more integrated and efficient European Payments Market;
  • Make payments safer and more secure and thus protect consumers against fraud, abuse and payment problems;
  • Promote innovative mobile and internet payment services; and
  • Enhance consumer protection.

We have updated our Framework Contract with our members in accordance with this directive and this is available by clicking on the following link: PSD2 Framework Contract

CU Schools Quiz

February 16th, 2016

The Annual Credit Union Schools Quiz was held on Friday night (29th January 2015) and we had a fantastic turnout.

All teams performed well but the night belonged to St Oliver Plunkett’s National School with both of their teams winning.  It was hard luck for Scoil Eanna, Ballybay whose teams came second in both competitions.  The winning teams will now go forward to the regional stage to be held on Sunday 28th February in the Nuremore Hotel, Carrickmacross.

We wish them the best of luck.
