To address stakeholder feedback and questions received since PCI DSS v4.0 was published in March 2022, PCI SSC is planning a limited revision of the standard. Proposed changes include correcting format and typographical errors and clarifying the focus and intent of some of the requirements and guidance. There will not be any new or additional requirements in this revision.
To support this limited revision, the PCI Board of Advisors, Global Executive Assessor Roundtable, and Principal Participating Organizations (through the Technology Guidance Group) are invited to review and provide feedback on the proposed changes during a Request for Comments (RFC) period. The RFC will be open for six weeks, from 13 December 2023 to 24 January 2024.
Feedback from this RFC will help ensure that the proposed changes, clarifications, and additional guidance effectively support industry adoption of PCI DSS v4.0. Publication of the resulting revision is expected for the first half of 2024.
RFC feedback plays a critical role in the ongoing maintenance and development of PCI standards and resources for the payment industry.
