Best practice guidelines
The UK Cards Association maintain and develop a variety of best practice guidelines. These guidelines have been produced to establish a standard for the UK card payments industry to aim for, and provide examples of possible implementation strategies that meet requirements. They also act to safeguard the interests of consumers and ensure that there is greater transparency and consistency across the industry.
The UK Cards Association will continue to revise and enhance the materials as required.
All guidelines are advisory (rather than mandatory).
