Call for interest for Industry Standards Coordination Committee (ISCC)

Pay.UK is welcoming applicants for the Industry Standards Coordination Committee (ISCC).
The ISCC will be the lead advisory body to the Pay.UK  Standards Authority (SA) and report to the Legal Governance and Standards Committee, a sub-group of the Pay.UK Board.

Pay.UK’s SA is responsible for all aspects of standards development, maintenance and modification, including for the New Payment Architecture (NPA).  The SA will work closely with the ISCC to develop, maintain and modify Pay.UK standards. It will provide direction, advice and guidance on matters including:

  • changes to the Standards Framework
  • development and maintenance of new Industry Standards (such as ISO 20022) and existing Pay.UK standards (such as ISO 8583 for FPS and Standard 18 for Bacs)
  • external standards issues relevant to Pay.UK
  • strategies approved by the Pay.UK Board relevant to the Standards Framework or to Pay.UK’s SA.

A list of planned activity can be found in the Terms of Reference

Participants of the ISCC will be appointed based on their individual knowledge and experience, and will not represent their organisation. Nominations to become a participant of ISCC are invited from individuals with experience in the design, implementation, and/or use of standards for payment services, and knowledge of services in scope of Pay.UK and the Payment Strategy Forum Blueprint.

Expressions of interest should be submitted to Pay. UK by 5pm on Friday 15 February 2019 using the form below.

The final membership of the committee will represent a wide spectrum of Pay.UK’s stakeholders. The chair of the committee will come from the membership. Nominees prepared to act as Chair should indicate this as part of their expression of interest, and set out their relevant experience. Pay.UK will chair the ISCC until a chair is formally appointed.
