On 26 May 2016 the European Payments Council () together with the Cards Stakeholders Group (CSG) published version 7.5 of the Single Euro Payments Area () Cards Standardisation Volume (the SCS Volume) for a three-month public consultation. This document defines a standard set of requirements to enable an interoperable and scalable card and terminal infrastructure across , based on open international card standards. The SCS Volume version 7.5 consists of a series of separate books.
Here you find Book 3 (Data Elements) of the SCS Volume version 7.5 (see ‘related files’ below) which has been released for public consultation from 26 May to 12 August 2016.
Book 3 - ‘Data Elements’ supports the new card message standards defined in ISO (International Organization for Standardization) (i.e. 20022). It allows card schemes, issuers and acquirers to easily identify enhancements and comparisons with earlier ISO releases. In addition, the data within Book 3 is available within a separate spreadsheet which can assist in the design of related system architecture for implementation. This promotes the harmonisation of existing protocols with both the SCS Volume and the ISO 20022 card message authorisation and clearing standards. Book 3 serves as a major enabling factor to achieve technical interoperability in the area of processing based on the most advanced global message standards available.
