In response to the growing popularity of electronic payments, legislative security requirements have been strengthened with the Payment Service Directive 2 (PSD2) and the accompanying Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS). From September 2019, two-factor authentication will be the norm for contactless card payments above EUR 50 and remote payments above EUR 30. This challenges payment service providers to come-up with innovative solutions that meet safety requirements and are easy to use for consumers.

The ratio of EU household debt to disposable income rose in 2017. Albeit small, this increase was the first noted in six years. In that context, several observers are already warning of a possible upward risk of household over-indebtedness in the coming years. While it is too early to assess if this risk will materialise, a review of the effectiveness of existing rules aimed at tackling the issue should give us a better understanding of whether further policy actions are needed.
