Consultation documents

ECB feedback

The ECB received responses from ten entities, including banks, banking communities and operators of payment systems. Most of the responses were related to one or more of the following:

  • level playing field issues between retail payment systems that are subject to the SIPS Regulation and those that are not
  • additional credit and liquidity risk requirements for systemically important deferred net settlement systems
  • the powers of competent authorities

The ECB has assessed all of the comments.

The document “Response to the public on the revision of the SIPS Regulation” summarises the main amendments to the SIPS Regulation, including some interpretational guidance on the new requirements relating to credit and liquidity risk, and presents a high-level overview of the comments received.
