December 2015   To facilitate organizations who want to develop their own Token Service Provider solutions, EMVCo has established a Token Service Provider Code (“TSP Code”), which is a 3 digit code assigned to Token Service Provider (“TSP”) and maintained by EMVCo. The TSP Code is included in the Token Requester ID, which uniquely identifies the pairing of Token Requester with the Token Service Provider. This helps achieve transparency of the entity that provided the Payment Token. Note that EMVCo does not accredit, approve, or evaluate Token Service Providers, but rather, merely maintains this listing service.   Visit Page
