Chip Education for VARs, ISVs and Merchants

The Payments Security Task Force and the EMV Migration Forum has developed a chip education curriculum. This education series will provide U.S. value added resellers, independent software vendors and merchant organizations with an understanding of the U.S. market for EMV migration, U.S. debit deployment, development preparation, kernel management guidelines, lessons learned, and testing considerations to assist with EMV chip migrations.

See notice below.

Audio recordings of the six webcasts are now available. Each session is posted below with accompanying slides.

Please note that, on November 2, 2016, staff of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (the “Board”) released a FAQ relating to Section 235.7(b) of Federal Reserve Regulation II (promulgated by the Board pursuant to the Durbin Amendment to the Dodd-Frank Act), noting that although the FAQ is not an official Board interpretation, “[a] payment card network inhibits a merchant’s ability to route electronic debit card transactions if it, by network rules, standards, specifications, contractual agreements, or otherwise, requires the merchant to allow the cardholder to make the choice of EMV chip application on a debit card, where one application routes only to a single network.” None of the Information should be interpreted or construed to require or promote the establishment of any solution, practice, configuration, rule, requirement or specification inconsistent with applicable legal requirements, including Federal Reserve Regulation II, any of which may change over time. The U.S. Payments Forum assumes no responsibility to support, maintain or update the Information, regardless of any such change.
