On August 19, 2015, the UK Payment Systems Regulator announced that it is conducting a survey aimed at payment service providers who access payment systems indirectly. The survey is intended to inform the PSR’s consideration of whether action is required in the context of its two market reviews, which are on: (i) the supply of indirect access to payment systems, launched in May 2015; and (ii) the ownership and competitiveness of infrastructure provision (the hardware, software, secure telecommunications network and operating environments that are used to manage and operate payment systems), first announced in November 2014. Responses to the survey are due by September 23, 2015.
