All card acquirer licensees must include the following clause into the merchant agreements entered into with all their merchants: "Pursuant to the CBB directions and instructions, the merchant shall stop double swiping of a payment card at a merchant's point-of-sale (POS) terminal/electronic cash register (ECR) to capture or store cardholder and sensitive authentication data encoded on the magnetic stripe of a customer's payment card, after the merchant received the required card payment authorisation response. The merchant asserts its full compliance with the obligation contained in this clause and understands that any breach of this clause will expose the merchant to mandatory contractual and/or legal disciplinary actions by the relevant regulator and/or concerned Ministry."
