EMV CERTIFICATION SUMMARY

EMV CERTIFICATION SUMMARY

October 1, 2015 marked the beginning of the EMV liability shift for retailers across the U.S.  This change in fraud management for merchants will transfer the liability for transactions from counterfeit, lost and stolen cards from the issuer to the merchant. The transfer in liability mainly surrounds transactions where the merchant does not accept EMV transactions and a consumer uses an EMV enabled card.

While merchants are eager to adapt EMV, the payment industry is battling to overcome new obstacles in the U.S. EMV migration. Verifone having EMV experience in both Europe, Australia, and Canada has set a strategy to get merchants EMV certified quicker. Verifone is completing Class B Host Certifications where possible. Class B Host EMV Certifications refer to the certification of a payment application deployed by a third party (Verifone). In terms of EMV, this means that the messaging from the payment application directly to the processor has been verified as compliant with EMV standards. Concerning delivery, after Class B Host Certifications are completed, certifications for individual devices take place. Merchants can take advantage of these host certifications to significantly reduce the deployment time for EMV credit and debit acceptance.
