The IBAN-Name Check, or Confirmation of Payee (CoP), is an account name checking service that helps to make sure payments aren't sent to the wrong bank account. It helps customers and businesses make payments safely by checking the name on an account before a new CHAPS, Faster Payment or Standing Order is set up. In addition, operational costs are saved on the bank side.

Testaankoop, Test Achat, but also political voices are increasingly pushing to implement something similar in Belgium to reduce the risk of fraud.

Actively used in The Netherlands and the UK, we'll investigate with SurePay the potential for the Belgian banking sector.

Our speakers are:
