Postbank set to comply with the EMV migration deadline

03 January 2018
The BSP earlier set the deadline for EMV migration on 1 Jan 2017, but since some banks still have yet to comply, BSP extended the deadline giving all the BSP-supervised financial institutions until 30 June 2018, to fully comply with the EMV requirement. The BSP has ordered banks to issue all customers with EMV chip-enabled cards until 30 June 2018.
With the conversion of Postbank into OFBank as wholly-owned subsidiary of LAND BANK, the IT systems including the EMV migration is projected to be completed prior to the set deadline.
