A number of changes will take place in the area of payment services. These changes relate to a new European directive PSD2 (Payment Services Directive). One of the main objectives of PSD2 is to boost competition and innovation in the area of payment services.

The most significant change for ABN AMRO customers is that they will be able to give licensed third parties access to their current accounts. For the customer, this will enhance and create new experiences.

Alongside banks, other companies and organisations will be able to access account information and initiate payment services. This can only be done with permission of the customer.

When you require access as a third party service provider to ABN AMRO accounts, you need a PSD2 license from a local competent authority and a PSD2 QWAC EIDAS SSL certificate. In the Netherlands, the local competent authority is 'De Nederlandsche Bank' (DNB). If you require access to accounts in other countries you need a license in that country as well.
