Publication of Banks accessible by TPPs via CBI Globe on the NISP Directory

 

The "Joint Statement", drafted by the representatives of the two European associations of the providers of new payment services regulated by the PSD2 (European Third Party Providers Association - ETPPA and Financial Data and Technology Association - FDATA) and called for, by the European Commission, has the objective to promote transparency initiatives between the parties involved in the competitive scenario originated on the basis of Directive 2015/2366 (so-called "PSD2").

Among the activities called for in this document, there is the publication of an information set that allows third parties operating in Europe to carry out tests on the regulatory APIs exposed by European banks.

In line with this transparency initiative, the parties called for the population of solutions such as, for example, the already active Register managed by the NISP (NextGenPSD2 Implementation Support Program).

In this regard, it is following its role as a community technical solution, that CBI has collected from its approximately 300 members, the data useful for the testing activity carried out by the Third Parties on the APIs exposed through CBI Globe. In particular the following information was collected: the contact persons of the CBI Globe ASPSP members, the links to access the test environment of the latter and the API specifications exposed by the platform. This data was collected by CBI and sent to NISP, which proceeded to publish these data on the publicly accessible NISP Test Directory.

WEBINAR "CBI GLOBE: MAIN FEATURES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR PSPS AND THIRD PARTIES" THE WEBINAR WILL BE HELD IN ENGLISH

Consorzio CBI will organize a series of webinars to illustrate the "CBI Globe - Global Open Banking Ecosystem" service, which will be released in production on June 1st2019 and tested from March 14th2019.

In fact, CBI Globe will enable its member Intermediaries to reduce the technical-functional impacts - and the related investments - deriving from the adjustments imposed by the Directive, thanks to the centralization of multiple services, including, for example: the recognition of the Third Parties, the management of disputes, the 1st level help desk and the management of the documentation and of the technological updates of the solution.

 

CBI Globe will allow all banks in the role of ASPSP (Account Servicing Payment Service Provider) to dialogue in a more efficient and effective way with the Third Parties, through the availability of a single point of access, and to offer its customers advanced payment solutions, even at a competitive level, in line with the current international market standards.

 

During the webinar will also be illustrated the procedures to join the platform and the project planning.

IL SALONE DEI PAGAMENTI 2018 - "CBI GLOBE: THE INTERNATIONAL PLATFORM TO CONNECT BANKS AND FINTECHS, BEYOND THE PSD2" SESSION

8/11/2018
 

Consorzio CBI will again take part to the Salone dei Pagamenti which will be held at the MiCo in Milan from the 7th to 9th of November 2018.

The Salone dei Pagamenti is the annual event that allows to explore all the themes related to technological innovation and trends that are revolutionizing the world of payments in one big event.

 

On the 8th of November at 11:30 Consorzio CBI organized a session dedicated to the most significant innovation of this 2018: CBI Globe: the international platform to connect banks and fintechs, beyond the PSD2 .  

 

The “digital and regulatory evolution” that is heavily involving the payment services market will undoubtedly change the structure of the financial markets, representing a challenge and an opportunity that requires a strategic response from traditional intermediaries.

In order to actively respond to the fragmentation of the payments chain, Consorzio CBI and Nexi are implementing CBI Globe - Global Open Banking Ecosystem, a platform that will allow all members, even at an international level, to fulfill more easily the obligations imposed by the PSD2 regarding the telematic dialogue for the exchange of information and payments with Third Parties, also guaranteeing a higher level of consumer protection.

 

Thanks to CBI Globe, both banks and non-banking entities, including Fintechs, operating in the payments sector, can make the management of current accounts by customers easier and more efficient by offering both information and payment services, exploiting the business opportunities enabled by the same PSD2, to provide citizens and businesses with innovative services with high value-added. CBI Globe is therefore a concrete collaborative project between banks for the adaptation to the PSD2 guaranteeing at the same time to each member bank the construction of its offer in competition in the international payments market, without foreclosures for future developments.
