Payment Terminal and Application Certification

In august 2011, the Central Bank of Nigeria approved the Guidelines on Point Of Sale (PoS) Card Acceptance Services, which amongst others, mandated Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS) to act as the Payments Terminal Service Aggregator for the financial system.

As the Payment Terminal Service Aggregator (PTSA), Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS) is expected to be the only entity permitted to operate a Terminal Management System (TMS) and all payment terminals operating in Nigeria are required to connect to the PTSA. This is to ensure comprehensive oversight, reporting/performance monitoring, and also conforms to the objectives of shared industry infrastructure and best practice.

Consequently, Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS) is responsible for the certification and re-certification of all payment terminals and applications on behalf of the Industry. This will ensure that payment terminals deployed in Nigeria meet all required certifications and the minimum POS specifications as defined in the CBN approved guidelines.
