What are the compliance validation reporting requirements for merchants?

May 25, 2018 in Compliance

Under the new PCI standard, the compliance validation requirements for merchants of the VISA CISP and MasterCard SDP programs have been aligned so that merchants need only validate their compliance once to fulfill their obligation to all payment cards accepted. Merchants will provide compliance validation documentation to their Acquirer(s). Compliance validation documentation consists of the annual self assessment questionnaire and the quarterly PCI scan compliance report.
