European banks need to provide secure APIs and developer portals so that licensed third parties can access bank account information with the consent of customers. This is due to the entry into force of the new PSD2 in January 2018. After completing the regulatory requirements and having successfully obtained a license, you can offer the following services:
- Payment Initiation Services
- Account Information Services
- Availability check of funds for card-based transactions
To do this, you need to register your organization on our portal, and your application must issue the appropriate subscriptions to use the different production APIs. You will need an eIDAS TLS Production Certificate for Website Authentication (QWAC) issued by a Qualified Trust Service Provider (QTSP – e.g., Bundesdruckerei / D-TRUST). Hereby you can identify and verify at Berenberg as TPP for further activities.

All relevant information about the interfaces, e.g. current availability, documentation and specification of the implementation options of the BerlinGroup Standard, etc. is provided for you in the Developer portal.
During the market testing phase from 14 June to 14 September 2019, we also offer the following services:
