SurePay, the leading provider of Confirmation of Payee solutions, is excited to announce the appointment of Sinitta Singh as its new Business Development Manager for the UK. As the mandated implementation of PSR Group 1 & 2 draws near, the addition of Sinitta to the team will help ensure a smooth onboarding process for more PSP’s and Building Societies from Group 2.
Payment System Regulator mandated Confirmation of Payee
In October 2022, the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) announced that Group 1 needs to have implemented Confirmation of Payee by the end of Oct 2023. Group 2, all other PSP’s, before 31 October 2024. Both responding to CoP requests as well as sending CoP requests to other Banks to verify the beneficiary details before initiating a payment are mandated.
This means an additional 400 payment service providers, which will increase coverage from 92% of Faster Payments transactions to 99%.
Since the announcement SurePay has seen an enormous increase of interest in their CoP solution and have already helped 20+ Banks and 15+ Building Societies with a smooth implementation.
