On 7 June 2010 the recently created SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) Council met for the first time, taking a major step forward in strengthening the governance of the SEPA project at European level. The meeting brought together top-level representatives from both the demand and supply sides of the European payments market, under the co-chairmanship of the European Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB), the two institutions that have led the creation of this new body.

European Central Bank: Financial Stability Review June 2010

Do you SEPA? The ECB's point of view

Do you SEPA? The ECB's point of view Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell, Member of the Executive Board of the ECB Keynote speech at the 3rd International Payments Summit Milan, 27 October 2008 Introduction What does to SEPA mean? Does it mean to follow a fashion or to pay lip service to an idea? To me, it means more than that: it means being fully committed to creating a more integrated retail payments market in Europe, enabling competition and innovation, and in general making retail payments more efficient, safer and easier to use. People may wonder why, at a time of unprecedented financial turmoil, we continue to focus our attention and energy on payment issues.
