National ATM Council asks MasterCard to delay EMV liability shift
Even though EMV standards have been adopted across the globe, here in the United States it sometimes seems like we are just getting started.

The following is an article about the National ATM Council (NAC) regarding the liability shift from Maestro (a debit card service owned by MasterCard). Specifically, there is concern and confusion regarding which of the deadline dates apply, .e.g April 2013 or October 2016. It is worth noting that Visa has set a target compliance date of October 2017 for ATM Manufacturers to embrace the EMV standard.
