The PCI PIN Security Requirements and Testing Procedures, Version 3.0, August 2018 is available on the PCI SSC Document Library (ﬁlter by PCI PIN). All organizations should become familiar with the revised standard and understand the associated impacts to their environment. To support the transition to version 3, Visa will adopt the following timeline:
- Validating PIN Participants will continue to validate to version 2 until 30 September 2019.
- From 1 October 2019 through 31 December 2019, validating PIN Participants may validate their PIN security compliance to either version 2 with Visa reporting materials or version 3 with PCI reporting materials. Note: Version 3 assessments must be conducted by a PCI QPA.
- Effective 1 January 2020, all PIN assessments must be performed using version 3 with PCI reporting materials. Version 2 assessments with Visa reporting materials will no longer be accepted.
