Discover Financial Services Announces Next Steps For EMV Deployment Across The Globe

Discover (NYSE: DFS) today announced the next milestone in its global EMV deployment: a comprehensive strategy and roadmap that includes Discover Network, Diners Club International, PULSE and Discover Card.

Discover’s Fraud Liability Shift Policy

In alignment with U.S. EMV migration timelines, Discover is introducing Fraud Liability Shift for Discover Network (in the U.S., Canada and Mexico) and PULSE (in the U.S.), effective October 1, 2015 at point-of-sale terminals and Oct. 1, 2017 at automated fuel dispensers. This Fraud Liability Shift policy will be a risk-based payments hierarchy that benefits the entity that leverages the highest level of available payments security. As Fraud Liability Shift is already in place for Diners Club International (effective December 31, 2012 for mandated Participants), Discover will have one standard liability shift policy in place across all networks by October 1, 2015.

Starting October 2013, Discover will also grant annual PCI audit waivers for merchants that process 75% of Discover Network transactions via terminals supporting both contact and contactless payments.

Discover cardmembers also will benefit from the enhanced security EMV provides, as Discover looks to gradually start replacing its current cards with chip cards in the coming years, with initial outreach to frequent travelers.

PULSE EMV Deployment

PULSE, a Discover Financial Services company and one of the nation’s leading debit/ATM networks, will capitalize on Discover’s already significant EMV-deployment experience by using the D-Payment Application Specification (D-PAS) to enable EMV transactions at the point of sale. In addition to introducing Fraud Liability Shift, PULSE will require U.S. direct-connect merchants and point of sale acquirer processors to support EMV data effective Oct. 16, 2013.

Although PULSE’s implementation of D-PAS supports all cardholder verification methods, its U.S. implementation of EMV is expected to feature broad support for online PIN-authenticated transactions as the most secure cardholder verification method.
