Message from the ECPC Board of Directors

The ECPC was founded in April 2020, to develop and evolve the CPACE standard, when a pandemic was rapidly changing life as we knew it.

Payments were no exception, and the contactless technology required an independent and cost-efficient standard to promote its usage.

Only four years later, we are proud of the achievements in the CPACE ecosystem, which has become a global standard. More than 30 major vendors from all over the world have implemented and certified cards and terminal kernels, and schemes have adopted CPACE as their standard with millions of cards issued and a growing acceptance network.

In order to share experiences, we’ll be publishing regularly on the ECPC website a series of short interviews with users and vendors that we hope will further increase the market knowledge and interest for the CPACE standard.
