PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J., Dec. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As part of its efforts to provide guidance and education for the ATM industry in the transition to EMV, the U.S. Payments Forum (formerly the EMV Migration Forum) is partnering with the ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) to host its third ATM EMV implementation workshop, which will be held at the ATMIA U.S. Conference coming to Orlando in February.

The workshop, “Implementing EMV at the ATM,” will be held on February 14, 2017 at 1pm ET during the ATMIA U.S. Conference at the Sapphire Falls Resort, Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Independent ATM providers, small banks, credit unions, and merchant deployers preparing to implement EMV chip card technology at the ATM in the U.S. are encouraged to attend the workshop at no cost. To register for the EMV workshop or for more information about the full ATMIA Conference event, contact Brita Price (brita.price@atmia.com) at ATMIA.

“With some ATM fraud liability shifts now in effect and more slated for 2017i, there are many considerations that independent ATM owners, banks, credit unions, and merchant deployers need to be aware of as they migrate to chip technology, and many have questions about how to become chip-compliant,” said Randy Vanderhoof, director of the U.S. Payments Forum. “This workshop will cover essential requirements and recommendations to help ATM executives attending the ATMIA event to effectively and efficiently implement chip technology.”

“The ATM Industry Association has actively supported the EMV Migration Forum and U.S. Payments Forum since its beginning, and is pleased to host this U.S. Payments Forum EMV workshop. It is a great addition to our conference program,” said David Tente, executive director of ATMIA. “I hope that ATM deployers in the central Florida area will take advantage of this opportunity to hear from some of the industry’s leading experts on EMV – whether or not they plan to attend our main conference event.”

Through this workshop, attendees will:

  • Better understand upcoming liability shifts and the chargeback process – and what they mean to ATM owners and operators
  • Learn about important chip concepts and basic chip requirements for ATMs
  • Get suggested best practices and special considerations for migration planning and chip implementation – including ongoing maintenance and update information
  • Enjoy coverage of lessons learned and “landmines” to avoid during and after EMV migration
  • Have available Q&A opportunities with the nation’s top EMV experts
  • Hear updates on the status of the U.S. ATM chip migration

This workshop is based on the recent U.S. Payments Forum white paper, “Implementing EMV at the ATM: Requirements and Recommendations for the U.S. ATM Community,” created by the Forum’s ATM Working Committee. The workshop is part of the Forum’s ongoing efforts to provide the education necessary for the U.S. to successfully move to chip cards.
