Summary of Visa Europe credit card inter-bank fees commitments decision published

On 16 May 2014, the European Commission published in the Official Journal a summary of its February 2014 decision to accept binding commitments from Visa Europe (OJ 2014 C147/7). The Opinion of the Advisory Committee and the Final Report of the Hearing Officer have also been published. The commitments address the Commission's concerns that Visa Europe's multilateral interchange fees (MIFs) for credit card payments in the EEA (both cross-border transactions and domestic transactions in 10 EEA countries) might infringe Article 101(1) of the TFEU.

The Commission reached the preliminary view that the MIFs had as their object and effect an appreciable restriction of competition in the acquiring markets to the detriment of merchants and, indirectly, their customers. This was further reinforced by the effect of the MIFs on the network and issuing markets as well as by other network rules and practices. The Commission was particularly concerned about Visa Europe's rules on cross-border acquiring, which it considered constituted a territorial and price restriction by object and effect. Under the commitments Visa Europe agreed to cut the relevant MIFs for transactions with its consumer credit cards to a level of 0.3% of the value of the transaction. It also agreed to amend its cross-border acquiring rules (affecting both debit and credit card transactions) and to improve transparency.

The decision brought to an end the Commission's proceedings as regards Visa Europe's intra-EEA cedit MIFs, domestic credit MIFs set by Visa Europe, intra Visa Europe non-EEA credit and debit MIFs, international MIFs and Visa Europes rule on the applicable MIF in the case of cross-border acquiring. The decision, however, does not cover MIFs set by Visa Inc. and Visa International Service Association which the Commission is continuing to investigate.
