China UnionPay Joins EMVCo

EMVCo has announced that China UnionPay has joined as its latest member. According to the organization, "the addition of this global payment card system demonstrates the industry’s continued commitment globally to adopting and advancing the EMV standard for secure chip credit and debit payments."

Joe Cunningham, Current EMVCo Executive Committee Chair, commented:

EMVCo works to maintain, enhance and evolve EMV Specifications to continue offering secure and interoperable payments across the global payments industry. We are delighted to welcome UnionPay as a member and active contributor to this work. UnionPay’s addition as an equity member of EMVCo further reinforces the growth of the EMV standard globally. Its expertise at a technical, management and implementation level will support our ongoing goal to create a universally consistent and secure infrastructure that supports contact, contactless and mobile chip-based payments into the future.”
UnionPay now has an equal interest in the standards body - along with American Express, JCB, MasterCard and Visa.
