What Is The Timing For EMV In The US? [SiteLink Merchant Services EMV] [FAQ]
What date will EMV be required across the US?
SiteLink Technical Support Answer
The US is one of the last industrial countries to migrate to EMV chip card technology as a payment standard. October 1, 2015 marks the date on which fraud liability shifts fro all non-EMV enabled point-of-sale devices (except for automated fuel dispensers at gas stations). US Banks have already started issuing EMV cards and it is expected that by the end of 2015 there will be 166 million EMV credit cards and 1-5 million EMV debit and pre-paid cards in circulation in the US.
