TechnoXander 149 PSR's latest directive against APP fraud

A new update is released by the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) focused on strengthening protection against Authorised Push Payment (APP) fraud under the Faster Payments system. Interestingly, the new policy includes a reimbursement requirement for significant benefits to consumers and businesses alike.

According to the new policy, all the payment firms will have to reimburse the respectiveΒ amount to every customer who becomes a victim of APP fraud. This is undoubtedly a significant step in stabilising customer trust and confidence in the payment systems. However, the reimbursement cost will be equally shared (50:50) between the receiving and sending payment firms to promote cooperation and accountability.

The new PSR policy also focuses on safeguarding vulnerable customers to minimise APP fraud across the country. Overall, the policy ensures that every person benefit with the same level of online security.

One of the main aspects of this new policy is that all respective Payment Service Providers (PSPs) will have to reimburse the affected customers under five business days. The timely reimbursement will help in removing victims’ financial burdens and restoring peace of mind. Though the policy aims primarily on Faster Payments, the Bank of England is proactively seeking comparable outcomes for CHAPS.
