Accessing standards

Our standards can be accessed through Standard Source; it is an online portal where you can access standards collateral.

The Standards Authority has developed Standards Source to act as an authoritative documentation repository of technical standards in the UK payments market. This service provides a structured catalogue of all UK (retail and high value) payments standards, in both technical and business formats.

This publication of current and legacy standards can be used as a resource by the industry for new message creation and technical mappings, facilitating a best-in-class payment platform in the UK.
