CPSS Core Principles for Payment Systems.

By Gregor Heinrich


There are a number of international initiatives that have the goal of improving or maintaining financial stability by strengthening financial infrastructure. The Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) contributed to this process through its work on developing Core Principles for systemically important payment systems (Core Principles). The paper outlines the rationale for the Core Principles, describes the process that led to their publication, describes the scope of the Principles, and offers some thoughts on their implementation.
