[Webinar] An Introduction to EMVCo

Dear Web Payments Working Group,

Our EMVCo colleagues are organized some Webinar sessions in early December (2 and 3) on how EMVCo works. I thought it might be useful to share with this group since we have ongoing discussions about EMVCo technologies and Payment Request. I have enclosed below information from the organizers.


Information from Webinar organizers

Millions of card-based payments are made and accepted daily across the world. Today, consumers expect a payment device to work anywhere in the world, whether for face-to-face payment or making a remote payment online. The process is familiar, convenient and reliable for the consumers and businesses making payments and the merchants accepting them.
EMVCo makes this possible. The technical body exists to enable payment cards to work more seamlessly and securely worldwide.
EMVCo is hosting a free-to-attend webinar to provide the payments industry and other interested stakeholders with ‘An Introduction to EMVCo – What it Does and How it Does it’.
Two sessions will be delivered of the same webinar to best accommodate different time zones:
 • Session 1 – Register
  • Wednesday 2 December at 8am UK / 9am CET
  • Wednesday 2 December 4pm Shanghai / 5pm Tokyo
 • Session 2 – Register
  • Thursday 3 December at 9am Pacific time / 11am Central time / 12pm Eastern time
  • Thursday 3 December at 5pm UK / 6pm CET
Join us to learn: 
 • How EMVCo works with the payments industry to provide a consistent framework for developing and implementing payment products that will work seamlessly and securely within a global infrastructure, regardless of where payments are made or received.
 • Why the product testing processes and certification programmes provided by EMVCo promote confidence that products will perform as outlined by the EMV® Specifications once live in the field.
 • EMVCo’s role in managing marks to confirm product, solution, laboratory, and test tool compliance to EMV Specifications, and how the easy-to-recognise visual symbols for point of payments (either face-to-face or remote) provide consistency, familiarity, and confidence, regardless of which card or channel a consumer uses.
 • The industry engagement opportunities EMVCo provides to help shape specifications that reflect input from the payments industry.
The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
