Fime & Bridge partner to accelerate API open banking compliance

November 02, 2020Fime and Bridge powered by Bankin’, one of Europe’s leading open banking solutions, have partnered to help banks fast-track the functional and security testing of their APIs to achieve exemption from the fall back mechanism under thePSD2  regulation. Their co-developed end-to-end APItesting platform works in a production environment, allowing Fime to automatically test banks’ API open banking are in line with the European regulations.

The automated testing platform helps banks validate compliance with the Regulatory Technical Standards, The Berlin Group standards and the STET standards. It is available for AIS1, PIS and CBPII APIs. To complete the process, Fime experts provide compliance services to deliver the compliance report to the NCA (National Competent Authority).

“APIs need to be thoroughly tested before they can be exempted (article 33.6 b of the RTS - Regulatory Technical Standards related to the implementation of the PSD2). There was no solution on the market today to answer some needs which was slowing the adoption of open banking and causing frustration amongst some stakeholders,” comments Alexis Roque, Head of Operations at Bridge powered by Bankin’.

Raphaël Guilley, VP Testing Solutions at Fime, adds: “Regulatory pressures are mounting for banks. This platform empowers banks to ensure the performance and security of their APIs, as well as alignment with some of the largest open-access API standards in Europe. This is a significant step towards greater stability and compliance in the open banking ecosystem.”
