In light of the European Commissions review of PSD2, Fleet Cards Europe has published a position paper outlining its position on the issue.
As stated in the position paper Fuel Card Companies have a very specific status within the PSD2 framework, given their particular nature as niche instruments. Therefore the unique nature of the business model has led to contrasting views among Member States, with some concluding that fuel cards are not payments instruments and should be completely out of scope of PSD2. 2
FCE members strongly agree that one of the priorities of the review is to improve, amongst other things, the implementation and harmonisation of the PSD framework across Member States.
Our paper outlines in details, the points and issues that the FCE considers should be addressed in this review
