  • Expanding network reach and avoiding market fragmentation by enabling interoperability of credit transfer services;
  • Promoting a level playing field and fostering collaboration at the infrastructure level by ensuring fair and open access to shared payment infrastructure;
  • Minimizing risk of disruption to system-wide important credit transfer systems through effective oversight of shared payment infrastructure;
  • Encouraging innovation through the establishment of an innovation sandbox and publication of Open APIs;
  • Safeguarding the safety and integrity of credit transfer systems through proportionate risk management measures; and
  • Fostering confidence in the use of credit transfer services via enhanced customer protection measures.
