SPA MEMBERS

 

The SPA is a non-profit organization, founded in 2004 by the world’s leading secure payment technology providers - G+D Mobile Security, IDEMIA and Thales.

Its membership today represents the complete card issuance value chain; from card manufacturers, through operating system and application developers, to personalization and post issuance companies.

In a reflection of the evolving nature of payment, SPA is extending membership beyond the card issuance – inviting participation from the wider payment ecosystem.

The Association provides a comprehensive membership and associate membership program – with all members benefiting from advocacy activities, advisory services and participation in its extensive Working Group programme.

The Association also provides an Advisory Councils programme, a mechanism described in its Bylaws, by which it allows participation from non-Members in its Working Groups. More information here
