BID TO DELAY PCI DSS COMPLIANCE DEADLINE DENIED

Date published 04.12.2017

FOLLOWING the failure last week to delay compliance with PCI DSS, Clinton Leask, Senior Product Manager, Nedbank Acquiring, and Janaurieu D’SA, International Air Transport Association Area Manager Southern Africa, have answered TIR readers’ most pressing questions relating to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards and compliance requirements relating to IATA accreditation in the December issue of TIR Southern Africa.

IATA accredited retailers have until March 1, 2018 to comply with new standards but other businesses in the supply chain are facing increasing pressure to review bookings and check-in processes to avoid off-selling (full story in TIR December – www.tir.co.za).

The Association of Southern African Travel Agents said last week an attempt to defer the deadline for compliance for BSP ZA at last week’s international Passenger Agency Conference had been unsuccessful.

ASATA Chief Executive Officer Otto de Vries said the organisation was looking at other options. However, he urged all travel agencies with IATA licenses “to proceed with the necessary steps to ensure their compliance by March 1, 2018”.
