Compliance Workshops

PCI-SIG Compliance Workshop Events

The next PCI-SIG Compliance Workshop #98 is scheduled for August 2-5, 2016 in Milpitas, CA. PCI-SIG hosts Compliance Workshops up to four times a year in various locations around the world. Compliance Workshops offer members the opportunity to test and validate their products before they enter the field. Testing is completed against PCI-SIG maintained systems, as well as other leading manufacturers of PCI products.

IMPORTANT: Due to the start of official PCI Express®3.0 testing and the anticipated increase in attendance, PCI-SIG has made changes to increase our product testing capacities. In case registration still exceeds our testing capacities, we have established a reasonable cap for each product type and revision.  If these caps are reached during online registration, we will put any additional products on a waiting list. Products will be moved from the waiting list to full registration if possible, based on the order of their attempted pre-registration and will be notified the week of July 11.

COST: Attendance at this Members Only event is free. Please note that your credit card information will be collected for product registration(s); however, you will not be charged unless you do not bring your product to the event or your product registration is not cancelled by 12noon on Friday, July 8, 2016.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE & TESTING SCHEDULES: We do not accept onsite product registrations so you MUST register your product prior to the registration cut-off date of 12noon on Friday, July 8, 2016. Your testing schedule will be created based off of the information you provide for your registered product, so please be sure that any changes to your product’s information are completed prior to the registration cut-off date. No product detail changes may be made after registration has closed as we will be distributing anonymized testing schedules in advance of the event.

Name badges and non-anonymized test schedules will be distributed on Tuesday, August 2 from 8:00-8:45am outside the PCI-SIG Hospitality Suite and testing will begin that same day at 8:45am.
