Does PCI SSC provide a list of PCI DSS-compliant service providers?

FAQ Response

The PCI SSC does not certify service providers as PCI DSS compliant. All entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data are required to comply with the PCI DSS and validate their compliance in accordance with the payment brands’ compliance programs. Some of the payment brands do recognize compliance of service providers. Please check with the payment brands to understand their compliance programs and whether they recognize compliant service providers.
