The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) will give banks and credit card issuers more time to adopt the E-Payments User Protection Guidelines
The Guidelines were first issued in September 2018 and were originally scheduled to come into effect on 31 January 2019.
The banks have requested MAS for more time to implement the Guidelines, owing to the scale and complexity of system changes needed to implement the transaction notification standards for all products and customers as set out in the Guidelines. MAS has agreed to adjust the effective start date to 30 June 2019. After the Guidelines come into force, a more comprehensive notification alert process and framework for unauthorised transactions will be in place.
