Under PSD2, all payment services providers, including credit card providers, money remitters and e-money issuers, account information service providers (AISP) and payment initiation service providers (PISP) are required to file reports in relation to confirmed fraudulent activity, known as the REP017 report.

The first submission for REP017 is scheduled for 31st January 2019 covering the period from the 13th January 2018 to 31st December 2018. For this period, the FCA have published an interim REP017 report to be completed.
