A Variation to the Access Regime for the ATM System: Conclusions – August 2012 6. Conclusion

The Board has decided that it is appropriate to vary the Access Regime such that the Bank may grant an exemption to the prohibition on a participant being both a payer and receiver of interchange fees under one-way arrangements, should the Bank decide that such an exemption is appropriate. The varied Access Regime, set out in the Attachment, is substantially the same as the draft Access Regime issued for consultation on 29 May 2012, and will be effective from 29 August 2012.
