Why EMV Still Matters

The decision to delay the forecourt EMV liability shift from October 1, 2017 to October 1, 2020, came as quite a surprise to many in the industry.  While the delay provides retailers with additional time to make EMV upgrades, upgrades are likely to continue at a rapid pace given the potential risks to retailers choosing to wait.

Despite the delay in the liability shift date, the petroleum industry will continue to move forward with implementation and dealers are encouraged to make upgrades as soon as they become available.
