ECB issues guide for CPS assessment: ECB has published a guide for assessing card payment schemes (CPSs) against the oversight standards. It outlines the general requirements that supervised CPSs should follow to provide the general business and statistical information needed, and to respond properly to all assessment questions following the specific oversight guidelines on what should be expected by those who oversee the CPSs. The guide outlines the reporting methodology that should generally apply and lists the specific assessment questions that CPSs will have to answer.
