The committee helps the European Commission adopt implementing measures of the payment services directive, and other issues linked to payments.
It is composed of representatives from EU countries, and the meetings are chaired by the European Commission. Representatives of EFTA and EEA countries, candidate countries for EU membership and the European Central Bank (ECB) may attend as observers.
