Technical Advisory Group

The Technical Advisory Group manages the MULTOS Specification so that fully interoperable platforms, applications, systems and other MULTOS-supporting products may be developed and deployed by platform licensees and other industry partners and suppliers. MULTOS Specifications for application development, card personalisation and deployment are made available to the industry and customers free-of-charge* and royalty-free. The TAG ensures that as new features are introduced, interoperability and backwards-compatibility is maintained in order to protect both industry and customer investment in MULTOS. The MULTOS Technical Manager and Secretariat ensure that Technical Library documentation and support products, such as application development tools, are maintained in line with the evolving specification.
