Abstract

For our country, the development and the modernization of the national system of payments were and are a prevalent subject of the financial arena, after the socialist period since 1990. The purpose of this study is to examine the actual status and the future application of Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). Frameworks, based on the Romanian experience. The study is structured on chapters that present the theoretical background of the theme, the strategy for the adoption and migration to SEPA payment instruments, the actual stage and the challenges of the SEPA implementation in Romania. Our aim is to underline the importance of adopting Single Euro Payments in our country and to present its overall impact on the national financial services market. Although Romania may be facing obstacles in terms of joining the Euro zone, it is already well integrated in terms of payment infrastructures and has already put in place SEPA instruments.
