Version 3.0 of the Berlin Group Standard published
The Berlin Group is publishing today the new version 3.0 of its Card Transaction Message Standard for the Acquirer/Issuer interface. The new version incorporates the processing of special transactions as identified by the EPC cards standarisation document just published, known as "Volume", and is compliant to the SEPA requirements on the processing of card transactions as identified by the EPC. The version 2.0 of the Berlin Group standard, which is used by several processors today will not be maintained any more, but will be kept on the web site in an archive. Change requests will only apply to version 3.0 from now on.
