More information on the activities of the MSG MSCT may be found in “Related links”.
In view of the extension of their mandate (see MSG MSCT 091-20), the MSG MSCT has reviewed early January 2021 the composition of their Plenary. Currently there are five open seats available for non- stakeholders in this Plenary and the wishes to launch an open call for nominations to identify candidate participants.
The is looking for professionals from various backgrounds related to payments or technology, ideally from organisations having a pan-European scope: representatives of consumers, retailers, e-merchants, technology vendors, other service providers. Candidates should commit to actively participate to the MSG MSCT Plenary meetings. Note that the composition of the Plenary should remain well balanced in terms of technical skills, experience with the provision of MSCT services, geographic representation and types of stakeholder represented.
Membership of the MSG MSCT Plenary also enables participation to one or more of the established work-streams (WSs) of the MSG MSCT: WS MSCT use cases, WS MSCT technical interoperability and WS risk & security.
