EMA Luxembourg

The Luxembourg Branch of the Electronic Money Association is an exclusive group of e-money issuers and non-bank payment service providers holding regulatory authorisation in Luxembourg.

Our membership comprises e-money institutions and payment institutions only, meaning our engagement opportunities, working groups, policy and lobbying efforts are strictly focused on regulatory issues that specifically impact the e-money and payments business. 

Our current areas of focus are emerging European legislation including PSD3/PSR, Instant Payments, the AML Package, MICAR, FIDA and CBDCs. We meet quarterly in Luxembourg where members engage with the CSSF on European and local regulatory developments impacting the e-money and payments business.
