Public Consultations


APCA undertakes consultations not only with APCA members, but also with the wider community. In this way we encourage and lead conversations about important aspects and issues in the payments system.  These consultations help set industry policy direction and give the community an opportunity to have a say on the future of payments. Our recent consultations and their outcomes are listed below.
