The objectives of Acquiris are:

  • To centralize the ownership and licensing of the Intellectual Property Rights linked to the C-TAP terminal specifications in order to allow a controlled evolution in line with open governance principles. The commercial usage of the C-TAP specifications is subject to licensing by the Organization;
  • In line with the members’ requirements and market evolution, to maintain and extend
    these common specifications. This will involve the regular publications of extensions and modifications in line with a commonly agreed lifecycle model;
  • To make these C-TAP specifications available to all authorized parties that require them in line with membership and licensing agreements;
  • To promote these C-TAP specifications for their implementation and usage, with a
    priority to the Single EURO Payment Area (SEPA);
  • To represent the interests of these common specifications with regulators;

In support of these objectives, the organization will:

  • Organize and manage a functional certification framework to guarantee interoperability to all parties;
  • Perform a number of administrative tasks such as the collection and distribution of common parameters to drive the implementations of the common specifications;
  • Act as a cryptographic certification authority in support of these processes that require Public Key Infrastructure support.
In the interest of the members, the organization can deploy means that will allow achieving the above objectives. The organization can take all appropriate and required actions that are directly or indirectly necessitated to accomplish these objectives, partially or in total, that will facilitate these objectives to be achieved.
