How EMV Compliance Impacts Self-Service Kiosks

EMV Compliance for Self-Service Kiosks

It is no surprise that EMV is rolling out on October 1, 2015 and that if you are not EMV compliant then your financial institution is at greater risk. EMV, which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, is new a global standard for self-service kiosks, ATMs and payment terminals which can accept smart payment cards. EMV cards are smart cards that store their data on integrated circuits, also called chips, rather than magnetic stripes.

EMV Impact to Banks and Financial Institutions

EMV compliance is shifting liability of fraudulent transactions from the financial institution, banks and credit unions that issue the smart payment cards to the merchants and retailers who accept them for payment. The shift will result in the owner assuming liability for fraudulent transactions of non-EMV compliant payment devices and self-service kiosks. This liability shift means that those card issuers and merchants using non-EMV compliant payment devices and self-service kiosks that choose to accept transactions will assume liability for any transactions that are found to be fraudulent. If ever there was a time to ensure EMV compliance with a chip-compatibility strategy that reduces fraud, it’s now.

Payment Devices without EMV

Financial institution, banks and credit unions that have and self-service kiosks are directly impacted by EMV compliance. Not only from a smart card issuing perspective, but also the devices like self-service kiosks that accept them.
