    BCB Publishes Proposal for Regulatory Sandbox

    December 11, 2019

    BCB proposed "normative acts" for the controlled testing environment for financial and payment innovations (regulatory sandbox) and on the conditions for provision of products and services in the context of this environment and within the National Financial System and the Brazilian Payments System. The public consultation also covers specifics for the first cycle of the regulatory sandbox, such as duration and limitation of the number of participants, required documentation, classification criteria, schedule of the application phase, and selection and authorization process. Interested parties are requested to submit comments by January 31, 2020.

    The regulatory sandbox will allow institutions to test innovative projects (new products, services, or business models) with real customers, subject to specific regulatory requirements. To participate in the regulatory sandbox, companies will need BCB authorization. Therefore, in addition to meeting the eligibility criteria, institutions must submit proposals for the supply of products or services within the concept of an innovative project and within the scope of the National Monetary Council (CMN) and BCB. For the first cycle of the regulatory sandbox, BCB will select 20 companies, which will have a one-year period, renewable for another year, to develop the product.
