Brazil: Open Banking moves into its fourth stage
It is expected that the implementation of the next, fourth stage of Open Banking in Brazil will begin on 15 December 2021.
The first phase of the program took effect in February 2021, opening service channels to consumers. The second phase of the program, which took effect in August 2021, involved the sharing of customers’ registration and transactional data, with their prior consent. The third phase of the program started at the end of October 2021, and involved facilitating sharing payment transactions between participating institutions, and introducing a system allowing for credit transaction proposals to be shared amongst financial institutions and correspondents in Brazil.
The fourth phase will provide for the exchange of information about foreign exchange, investments, pension plans and insurance services. Additional phases are expected in the first half of 2022.
