International NFC Payments (2005 - current)

The INP IG was established since 2008 and evolved from the IMP IG. In the past years, the issue group has made considerable progress. Among its accomplishments, the IMP IG has set up and carried out successfully several field trials for phone-bill based IMP. It also submitted best practices and annual recommendations based on their results.

Additionally, the IG not only focuses on phone bill-based IMP but is also interested in the development of Near Field Communication (NFC) IC card-based micropayments around the world.
