Our UK Projects

The EPA’s eight projects run from London and bring together more than 80 high level volunteers from across the payments industry.

Project Banking Access

Helps the payments industry support EMIs, PIs, digital banks, and merchants to open and keep open bank accounts for safeguarding funds and everyday trading, and to secure widely accepted understanding of the scale and nature of de-risking and its impact on financial services and businesses.

Project Financial Crime

Delivers community-driven solutions to address the problems posed by digital and financial criminal activity, and positions the EPA and its members as leaders in tackling financial crime.

Project International Trade

Encourages trade between EPA members and organisations that use payments outside the UK, stimulates the adoption of new payments products and services in emerging markets, and provides access to market intelligence and guidance

Project Inclusion

Drives industry activity to address financial exclusion, informs and collaborates with government and third sector bodies to provide clarity on PayTech innovations and solutions that reduce financial exclusion and the poverty premium, and encourages the payments industry to develop financially inclusive products

Project Regulator

Engages regulatory bodies to promote and champion the concerns of EPA members in current and future regulation, and drives change through the development of a fairer regulatory landscape for payments companies
