This TP applies in relation to a person who falls within regulation 122(1) (Transitional provisions: requirement to be authorised as a payment institution) or regulation 123(1) (Transitional provisions: requirement to be registered as a small payment institution) of the Payment Services Regulations (a "transitioning payment institution").

DISP 1 (Treating complainants fairly) applies in relation to a transitioning payment institution as if the transitioning payment institution were a payment institution.

4

R

The Ombudsman can consider a complaint that relates to an act or omission by a transitioning payment institution under the Compulsory Jurisdiction if:

(1)

it could consider that complaint under the Compulsory Jurisdiction if it related to a payment institution; and

(2)

(where the transitioning payment institution is a licensee) the complaint relates to an act or omission in providing payment services.

5

G

The effect of this transitional provision is to:

(1)

apply to transitioning payment institutions as though they were payment institutions the complaints-handling requirements in DISP 1.1 to DISP 1.8; and

to bring them within the scope of the Compulsory Jurisdiction to the same extent as payment institutions.

Complaints relating to payment services, consumer credit activities or a combination of both can be considered under the Compulsory Jurisdiction.
