European Banking Authority - Strong Customer Authentication - PSD2?

Are travel purchases (GDS, or Travel Fusion, European Rail, etc...) going to be affected by this new EU law for essentially what is 2 factor authentication?

If so, is Concur doing any education?

At first glance this seems like a massive hiccup in efficiency for anyone handling travel purchasing?

Hi Ashley - any updates?  This is set to go-live in some locations (if not delayed) in 11 days.  We need to understand any Concur updates / changes and how this will work to communicate to our travelers.

 

The release notes from August only state that Concur is talking to DC partners to understand any necessary changes.

 

**Planned Changes** Strong Customer Authentication Support
(Europe Travel Direct Connects)
Effective September 14, 2019, a new European regulation called Strong Customer
Authentication (SCA) will affect Concur Travel. SCA is intended to reduce fraud and
enforce security with online payments.
With SCA, additional details are required if an arranger/travel is a resident of the
European Union (EU) and makes a purchase with a personal credit card, from a
European direct connect (e.g., Travelfusion). This change can affect Air, Hotel, and
Rail purchases. It does not affect Car and Ground, since cards are used to secure the
reservation but not for immediate payment. SAP Concur is working with its European
direct connect partners to understand if API changes are required.
