What we do
AFEP is a non-profit association for Authorised Payment Institutions and E-Money Institutions operating in the European Economic Area.
The organisation was founded in 2012 in order to act as a representative body for payment companies.
Since its foundation, AFEP has developed into a well respected association that acts as the voice of the industry and liaises with government departments and regulatory bodies on important legislative matters.
The aim of the association is to promote the highest standards of practice for compliance; advocate on behalf of our members with regulators and government bodies, and encourage our members to share and exchange information for the benefit of members.
