A Variation to the Surcharging Standards: A Consultation Document – December 2011 6. Next Steps

The Board invites comments on the specific form of the proposed variations to the Standards for the designated MasterCard and Visa credit card systems and the Visa Debit system. Given that the current paper reflects the output of a public consultation on the case for a variation of the Standards, this issue will not be considered as part of the current consultation.

Formal written submissions should be provided by no later than 10 February 2012 and should be sent to:

Head of Payments Policy Department
Reserve Bank of Australia
GPO Box 3947
Sydney NSW 2001



Submissions provided by email should be contained in a separate document, in PDF, Word or equivalent format.

In the normal course of events, submissions will be posted on the Reserve Bank's website and those making submissions will be provided with an opportunity to discuss their submission with the Bank.
