Approved PTS Devices
PIN Transaction Security (PTS) devices are used by a merchant at the point-of-interaction for capturing payment card data and validating approval of its use for a transaction. The Council, via PCI Recognized Laboratories, validates the conformance of PTS devices to the PCI PTS standard and provides a list of approved devices. The Council urges merchants to use approved PTS devices in their payment environments. Some payment brands require the use of approved PTS devices; entities should contact their acquirer or the payment brands directly for information about such requirements.
Please review the legal conditions and restrictions regarding PCI PTS approval contained in the PTS Device Testing and Approval Program Guide.
Devices with Expired Approval - These are devices whose approval has expired as delineated in the Expiry Dates section of the PTS Device Testing and Approval Program Guide. For specific information regarding payment brand usage mandates for expired devices, please contact the payment brand(s) of interest.

Do you need guidance on device compliance?
PCI Recognized Laboratories are organizations that have been approved by the Council to conduct security evaluations on a range of product types, both hardware and software. For device vendors and manufacturers, the labs perform device testing to validate compliance to the PIN Transaction Security requirements and, to facilitate the evaluation process prior to actual testing, offer guidance on device design and compliance assessments.Find a PCI Recognized Lab
