To use Open Banking, the banks and Third party providers have to comply with the strict rules of the Financial Services Authority and PSD2 (Payment Service Directive 2) regulatory requirements. You can check if Third party provider is regulated by visiting the European Banking Authority (EBA) registry.
PSD2 is an EU Directive, administered by the European Commission (Directorate General Internal Market). It regulates payment services and payment service providers throughout the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). The Directive's purpose was to increase pan-European competition and participation in the payments industry also from non-banks (Third party providers), and to provide for a level playing field by harmonizing consumer protection and the rights and obligations for payment providers and users.
In accordance with data protection rules under both PSD2 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), account holders can exercise control over the transmission of their personal data. No data processing can take place without the express agreement of the consumer. Third party providers can only access and process the personal data necessary for the provision of the services the consumer has agreed to.
