Share this post

The UK’s regulatory landscape is expected to change significantly as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) brings in new requirements for payments and e-money firms in 2023.

A new report from fscom aims to guide companies on where to focus their efforts over the coming year to keep their compliance process ahead of the evolving regulatory landscape.

The report covers consumer dutyoperational resiliencecyber securityfinancial crime, and other critical areas where the regulator expects companies to manage risks.

Among the main changes it identifies are:

  • The Consumer Duty imposes deadlines for companies to take action to protect consumers by the end of April and the end of July.
  • Applications for authorisation are likely to require more preparation than in previous years.
  • The regulator is becoming more proactive, for example through Dear CEO letters and Skilled Person Reviews.
  • New ESG requirements are expected, particularly around social and governance factors.

The report focuses on payments and e-money institutions in the UK, but it also has relevance for the wider financial sector.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
