EMV

IC Group is trained in the latest EMV technology to ensure a seamless experience for cardholders and financial institutions. Let our experts guide you through the complex steps to issuing your chip cards.

What is EMV?

EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa. The goal is to provide a global standard for inter-operable credit and debit transactions.

Why do I need to move to chip technology?

Effective October 1, 2015, the party that is responsible for a contact chip transaction not occurring will bear the financial responsibility for any resultant card present counterfeit fraud losses (excluding fuel transactions which have a liability shift date of October 2017).

What are the advantages of converting to EMV?

  • Avoid increased liability.
  • Provide added security to cardholders against certain types of fraud (such as counterfeit and lost/stolen card transactions).
  • Chips allow far more data storage than current magnetic stripe cards.
