Important Version 3 Documents

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance


2/1/2010 - RDP software is fully PCI credit card compliant - see the PCI Security Standards Council list of Validates Payment Applications.

In order to protect consumers from credit card fraud, the credit card companies (Visa, MC, Amex, Discover, etc.) formed an organization called Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (  This organization has the task of setting the PCI specification and enforcing it.  Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance assessment applies to any business collecting credit card information.  Related issues:

  • RDP software is required to follow PCI standards.  RDP is not not making or enforcing PCI standards. 
  • All older versions of RDP software, including RDPDOS, RDPWin2, RDPWin1, and IRM Classic are NOT PCI compliant or certified.  Customers should contact RDP for information on how to upgrade to RDPWin3 and IRM.Net Version 3 
  • There is more to your PCI compliance than RDP software.  All customers should read the Visa Compliance Validation.
  • It is the responsibility of each customer to assure full PCI compliance.  RDP is NOT LIABLE for damages or fines related to PCI compliance.  RDP offers no assistance, guarantees, or advice regarding PCI compliance and cannot be held liable for any damages resulting from customer failure to comply with full PCI compliance standards. 
  • Any customer collecting credit cards with or without RDP software must be compliant by July 1, 2010.
