Our Policy Work

Our policy work reflects the areas most relevant to our broad membership base, giving our members the opportunity to contribute their expertise and share their views and influence better outcomes for the industry.

We work closely with industry stakeholders such as the Bank of England, the FCA, HM Treasury, the Payment Systems Regulator, Pay.UK, UK Finance and Innovate Finance. Our members are often invited to participate in workshops and consultation discussions such as our recent FCA Regulatory Scalebox Workshop and Cross Border Payments Consultation with the Bank of England.

Inspired by our community values – we are open, dynamic, inclusive, influential, sustainable and collaborative – we aim to shape policy developments in the UK and other jurisdictions through our external (strategic Projects and tactical Sprints) and internal policies, applying a consistent, transparent and democratic process with the highest level of governance and best practice of project management.
