Chair of the EMVCo Executive Committee (which is jointly owned by American Express, JCB, MasterCard and Visa) Joe Cunningham said: "As we witness continued adoption of EMV technology globally, it is encouraging to see new members from different industry sectors participating in the Associate Programme. The initiative provides interested stakeholders with a platform to engage with the organisation and provide input to the creation of future EMV Specifications. This in turn will help to further the global adoption of EMV through increased understanding of the technology."
