What is the EMV Compliance Deadline for Fuel Retailers and Convenience Stores?

According to an article published by NACS, the global trade association of the convenience and fuel retailing industry, the EMV compliance deadline has been extended to April 17, 2021, for retailers with fuel pump gas stations using automated fuel dispensers (AFDs). The original deadline of Oct. 1, 2020, was delayed due to concerns such as workforce and supply chain disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The compliance deadline will give retailers more time to work with their gas station installation contractor to source, test, certify and install EMV-compliant payment systems and corresponding software.
