BPFI Protocol on Multi-banked SME debt.

The Banking and Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) Protocol on Multi-banked SME Debt is designed to allow an SME in financial difficulty, and with multi-banked debt, to communicate with participating member banks of the BPFI on a collective basis, and to allow those banks to collectively discuss and consider the SME’s case. At the request of an SME customer or a bank (with the customer’s consent), the Protocol will see the setting up of a Liaison Group to enable the indebted SME to engage with all debtor banks at the same time and to facilitate collective consideration of the SME’s particular case by those banks.
