Can It Really Be #PSD2?!

The new Payment Services Directive (PSD2) has been approved by the European Parliament. Following the Parliament’s vote, in order to take effect, the Directive must be formally adopted by the EU Council of Ministers and published in the Official Journal of the EU. This is explained by the European Commission here. I understand that should be done by sometime in November. In the meantime, the official version is published by the European Parliament here. From that date of publication in the Official Journal, Member States will have two years to introduce the necessary changes in their national laws in order to comply with the Directive.

I have updated my note for SCL on PSD2 accordingly.
