For the duration of martial law, the National Bank of Ukraine has abolished the fees for the services it provides through its BankID System.
Specifically, the NBU will not charge subscribers (banks and commercial service providers) for connecting them to the system, maintaining their connection, and processing their transactions. The central bank has canceled these charges in order to ensure that the Ukrainian people have uninterrupted access to remote financial services and to speed up the operation of the NBU BankID System while martial law is in effect.
"Under martial law, it is vital that we provide the people of Ukraine with the ability to receive government and banking services remotely. We understand the importance of the NBU Bank ID System’s uninterrupted operation. We are trying as best we can to simplify the conditions for all subscribers. Among other things, the temporary waiving of the fees for NBU services will reduce subscribers’ costs and simplify settlements," said Olha Vasylieva, Deputy Director of the Payment Systems and Innovations Department.
Reinstatement of subscriber fees for NBU BankID System services will be announced in a separate press release.
Inter-subscriber charges that commercial service-providing subscribers pay to identifier banks for each successful electronic identification continue to apply.For other NBU measures regarding the operation of the banking system under martial law, please follow the link.
