Attestation of Compliance

An Attestation of Compliance or AOC is a form used by merchants to attest to the results of their assessments in compliance with the PCI standards. An AOC is typically used by smaller merchants who do not require the services of a QSA and will be submitted to the merchants bank and/or payment gateway provider who will register it with the appropriate card brand.
