Consultation Responses

The Payments Association, through the activities of Project Regulator, engages with regulatory bodies to promote and champion the concerns of Payments Association members in current and future regulation and drives change through the development of a fairer regulatory landscape for payments companies.

The UK payments industry is moving through a period of structural and regulatory change and so the Payments Association is keen to ensure that the payments industry is fully informed of all regulatory change and to ensure that the voice of all Payments Association members is heard in payments regulation. Through the Payments Association’s Project Regulator, the Payments Association has produced an active consultation registry which details consultations that the Project Regulator team recommends an organisational response, highlights all live payments consultations and will act as a navigation tool for Payments Association members.

Please click the button below which relates to the issue you’re having.

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.

The link you sent doesn't work

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.
