Request for Comments

Provide Valuable Feedback

The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) highly values feedback from the global payment card industry in the development of PCI Security Standards and programs. Dedicated comment periods are one of the several ways that PCI SSC solicits feedback from stakeholders.

The Process

Request for Comments (RFC) periods are avenues for PCI SSC stakeholders to provide feedback on existing and new PCI Security Standards. This feedback plays a critical role in the ongoing maintenance and development of these resources for the payment card industry. All comments will be available for viewing by those who participated in that RFC. Your comment(s), your organization’s name, and how PCI SSC actioned your feedback comments will be made available in the PCI SSC portal.

PCI SSC has developed detailed and easy-to-understand guidance on its official RFC process. To learn more, please check out the PCI Perspectives Blog, RFC Process Guide and RFC-at-a-Glance infographic.
