Approval and accreditation schemes

Several accreditation and approval schemes are operated, namely:

Card Protection Agency (CPA) accreditation scheme

Card Protection Agencies provide consumers with a card registration service. In the event that a card is lost or stolen, the consumer can stop all their cards and order replacements through the CPA. 

The scheme ensures that those Card Protection Agencies seeking accreditation meet minimum security requirements for the safe storage, processing and handling of valuable cardholder data.

PIN mailer security

UK Finance aims to ensure that PIN mailers sent to UK cardholders are secure. External laboratories are used for evaluating the security of PIN mailer printing solutions and products, and a list is maintained below of those that have been successfully evaluated.

Suppliers can make enquiries by emailing pinmailer@ukfinance.org.uk
