Due to supply-chain disruptions related to the COVID-19 virus, the PCI Council has extended the expiration date of PIN Transaction Security Point-of-Interaction (PTS POI) v3 devices from 30 April 2020 to 30 April 2021.
– Due to the situation, what we now see from PCI Council as a consequence of the Coronavirus makes sense. The business, in general, will be slowed down. Now, our responsibility as a provider is to help our customers with insight and intel so they can make decisions based on facts, says Tomas Nilsson, CTO at Westpay.
Q: Why does this happaned?
A: Since COVID-19 makes governments lock countries down and traveling restrictions are getting harder the
auditors (QSA’s) doing some of the on-site assessments cant get on site for doing those. Because of that PCI SSC has extended the
the PCI PTS 3.x lifespan with one year, until 30/4 2021.
Q: For how long am I allowed to install my PCI3 terminals?
A: With the extended lifespan for PCI PTS 3.x terminals, both new and extension of existing installations are allowed until 30/4 2021.
Q: For how long am I allowed to use my PCI terminals?
A: There has been no communicated change in sunset of PCI PTS 3.x terminals yet so it is currently still 2023 even though it could potentially be extended until 2024.
Q: Whats the difference between PCI3 and PCI5?
A: Mainly security related changes but more important the expiry date (2026) for new installations and sunset dates (2029).
Q: What modells are we talking about?
A: T103, T103P, 8006, T303
