Operations and Technical Committee (OTC)
The Operations and Technical Committee (OTC) focuses on the operational, procedural, functional and technical aspects regarding the EBA CLEARING systems EURO1, STEP1 and (where relevant) STEP2. Its major task is to examine and propose operational and technical enhancements to the infrastructure of the Company.
The OTC works in close co-operation with the EBA CLEARING Management, Country Group Representatives and User Advisory Groups. The Committee’s tasks currently include the validation of project plans presented by EBA CLEARING Management for the implementation of new system releases as well as updating User Manuals and Code of Conducts.
Besides focusing on the payment services of EBA CLEARING, the OTC also serves as an expert forum for existing and future IT and communication developments including trends in the European payments industry, both on a national and SEPA level.
The OTC is composed of business and technical experts from Shareholder Banks appointed by the different national user communities.
