FINEXTRA: Open Banking Europe publishes bank API directory

Open Banking Europe has announced the launch of the PSD2 Transparency Directory. This directory contains information on banks and brands, developer portals, end points and other information about APIs. For instance information on security and standardisation options. Furthermore, contact information for both account-servicing payment service providers (ASPSPs) and Third Party Providers (TPPs) will be stored in a telephone book. This enables them to contact each other more easily.

The PSD2 Transparency Directory provides information on over 1,500 developer portals of banks. Information about other banks and financial institutions will follow in the next six months. With the PSD2 Transparency Directory, Open Banking Europe meets the need of ASPSPs and TPPs for one source that stores all key information on bank APIs in a single place.
