The new Payment Services Directive was transposed into Belgian Law more or less at the same time as the GDPR and will fully apply in a few months. It is significantly impacting the financial industry.

Could this directive enter in conflict with the GDPR? Are there way to leverage GDPR efforts to comply with this directive?
