Smart Card Alliance creates EMV Migration Forum

Supporting EMV implementation

Smart Card Alliance is creating the EMV Migration Forum, to assist in the US’s effort to move towards paying with EMV chip cards (view press release). The Forum is designed to support the alignment of the EMV implementation steps required for global payment networks, regional payment networks, issuers, processors, merchants, and consumers to move from magnetic stripe technology to secure EMV contact and contactless technology in the US.

Although part of the Smart Card Alliance corporate organisation, the Forum will have a separate membership and will be open to representatives from financial card issuers, payments processors, merchants, acquirers, payment networks, industry suppliers and other constituent groups, such as payments industry associations to ensure that all stakeholders in the payment industry are represented.
