Version 7.5 of the Cards Standardisation Volume (the Volume) is currently under public consultation. All stakeholders can provide feedback until 12 August 2016.
The Volume is considered to be a key document for the card industry, aimed at achieving cards standardisation, interoperability, and security in Europe. It is published by the and maintained by the Cards Stakeholders Group (CSG).
The Volume version under public consultation includes guidelines facilitating compliance with the Card Interchange Fee Regulation (which final part came into force on 9 June 2016), particularly in the fields of contactless payments and choice of application.
As soon as the consultation closes, the expert teams of the CSG will review all suggestions. An updated Volume will be published in December, to take effect immediately for a three-year period.
