who process on behalf of other Visa clients must demonstrate PCI DSS compliance to Visa every 12 months. Visa has discretion to require any acquirer or its service providers to demonstrate compliance.

Visa acquirers must perform due diligence prior
to using any TPA and must ensure they have policies and procedures in place to
ensure proper oversight and control of the TPA regarding their Visa program.
