The Faster Payments Council (FPC) is an industry-led membership organization whose mission is to facilitate a world-class payment system where every person or organization can safely and securely pay anyone, anywhere, at any time and with near-immediate
funds availability. By design, the FPC encourages a diverse range of perspectives and is open to all stakeholders in the U.S. payment system. Guided by principles of fairness, inclusiveness, flexibility and transparency, the FPC uses collaborative,
problem-solving approaches to resolve the issues that are inhibiting broad faster payments adoption in this country.
