The Visa Approved Vendor Programme (AVP) is designed to ensure card manufacturers, magnetic-stripe card personalisers, IC personalisors, IC pre-personalisers, over-the-air personalisers and cloud-based payment providers meet the necessary security requirements based on the services offered and business classification type.
The assigned Foregenix consultant will carry out the Visa AVP onsite security assessment as required against the applicable security requirements.

Following the onsite assessment, a Visa AVP Security Report will be produced offsite by the Foregenix consultant detailing the findings of the assessment. The report prior to release will be passed to the Foregenix QA Service and is delivered by a highly experienced team who are very familiar with the Card Schemes and their specific requirements relating to the PCI Card Production Security Requirements ensuring that both our clients and Foregenix maintain compliance with the PCI Card Production Security Requirements and the card schemes to the highest level.
