Hi Anders,

I'm confused. FAPI is a profile on a number of specs and can be implemented by any party without constraint courtesy of the OIDF IPR.

What an individual ecosystem chooses to enforce as far as membership requirements is up to them but this doesn't seem like part of the FAPI remit? Case in point is that the FAPI spec does not currently provide specific guidance on admission control.

    Hi FAPIers,

    Currently FAPI methods are only accessible by TPPs.

    This may be "by design" but it also makes the API less universal and force banks to create competing APIs.

    As an example some mobile wallets provide real-time account balances.  This obviously requires a direct call to the associated bank.

    Could we have a meeting on this topic?
