Article 96(6) of the PSD2 transposed in Luxembourg under Article 105-2 (3) of the Law of 10 November 2009 on payment services requires payment services providers to provide the CSSF with statistical data on fraud relating to the different means of payment. This requirement also concerns branches of EEA payment services providers established in Luxembourg.
The European Banking Authority issued guidelines providing details on these reporting requirements for fraud data. In Luxembourg, these reporting obligations were adopted via Circular CSSF 19/712 addressed to all payment service providers and all branches of EEA payment service providers established in Luxembourg.
Based on the operational collaboration implemented between the Banque centrale du Luxembourg (hereafter “BCL”) and the CSSF providing for a Single Data Flow, this reporting is to be sent to the BCL. Based on this Single Data Flow, the Banque centrale du Luxembourg is the single point of entry in charge of gathering all the fraud reporting from all payment services providers and all branches of EEA payment service providers established in Luxembourg.
This collaboration, and hence required reporting, is presently taking into consideration the amendments of the REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK of 1 December 2020 amending Regulation of 28 November 2013 No 1409/2013 on payments statistics (ECB/2013/43) which, as from January 2022, covers all fraud data required under both the EBA guidelines as amended and the aforementioned ECB regulation. In this respect, the BCL has published the Regulation BCL 2021/30 “Règlement de la Banque centrale du Luxembourg / N° 30 du 12 juillet 2021 en matière de statistiques de paiement” in order to clarify the reporting obligations of all payment service providers in Luxembourg. As from the reporting period 1 January 2022 onwards, the statistical data needs to be compiled by the payment service providers and provided to the BCL using the CDDP6.
The instructions and the template to be filled in by payment service providers in the reporting process can be directly found on the web site of the BCL (see link in the “Documents” section below).
For any question on this data collection, please contact the BCL by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
