Trade associations


ALL CHIP AND PIN CARDHOLDERS MUST KNOW THEIR PIN ON THEIR CHIP AND PIN CARD TO BE SURE THEY CAN PAY

 

Trade associations have played an important role in the smooth implementation of the Chip and PIN Programme.

In the run up to 14 February 2006, members called on their trade associations for impartial help and guidance on chip and PIN issues, as well as information about the practicalities of implementing chip and PIN technology.

Trade associations have assisted by making their members aware of the need to communicate with the small minority of their customers who were not using the PINs on their chip and PIN cards - which helped to make life even tougher for the card fraudsters.

The section of the site - If you accept card payments - provides vital information for your members. You should also advise them to contact their acquiring banks for tailored information that is best suited to their needs.
