Strong Customer Authentication – what you need to know
From 14 September 2019, the Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) element of the Payment Services Directive 2.0 (PSD2) regulations takes effect.
You will likely need to do some development work to prepare for this change, so please
ensure this is added to your roadmap.
These regulations apply to all contactless face-to-face and electronic payments, where both the card
issuer and acquirer are within the European Economic Area (EEA), and in practice, mean that you
must apply SCA to every one of these transactions from 14 September 2019.
