NAC Negotiates EMV for US ATM Industry
The National ATM Council has hosted recent meetings with representatives from the major global card networks and ATM manufacturers for the US ISO/IAD sector in an effort to identify issues facing this sector of the ATM business, and facilitate a smoother EMV transition for the US Independent ATM industry and its customers. Issues under discussion include the viability, functionality and interoperability of current EMV solutions in the market, availability of EMV components, finalized development of the US Common AID to preserve current transaction routing protocols, and other key issues associated with the migration to EMV in the US. Discourse has been constructive and positive thus far, with all parties working cooperatively to identify remaining issues and real world solutions.
NAC Works with State of Illinois/Sponsor Banks for Proper ISO Certifications
Illinois state law requires the registration of independently owned/operated ATMs operating in the state, and imposes fines for non-compliance. The Illinois Division of Banking has contacted NAC for assistance in communicating these requirements to the independent ATM industry. NAC is working to evaluate the situation in Illinois and determine how best to help ensure awareness of and compliance with the applicable state requirements. One issue that has emerged is a concern by ISOs that by filing the registration information their locations will become a matter of public record—available for misuse by their competitors. NAC is continuing to investigate this issue and welcomes any information or feedback from NAC members operating in Illinois.
NAC Works with Law Enforcement to Help Stop ATM Break-Ins
NAC has been contacted by various state and federal law enforcement officials regarding recent criminal activity involving ATMs in the US. NAC is working to help facilitate a better awareness and understanding of the nature and scope of these crimes against ATMs, to encourage better communication/coordination between different law enforcement agencies and help these authorities improve future efforts to apprehend the criminals and stop the spread of crimes against ATMs.
