About the FPEG

The FPEG was established by the Commission under its Action Plans to prevent fraud in non-cash means of payment. It is an experts’ group at EU level which includes representatives of different parties involved in fraud prevention: i.e. national and EU payment schemes, banks, national public authorities, European and international law enforcement agencies (e.g. Europol, Interpol) retailers, consumer groups, network operators etc. The FPEG provides for a platform where stakeholders can effectively exchange information and best practice to prevent fraud. It contributes to intensify cooperation between interested parties, especially at cross-border level. It provides advice to the Commission.
