In response to the requirement for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) as part of the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2), Visa expects all parties in the ecosystem to deploy EMV 3DS 2.2 as quickly as possible, to allow time for implementation and testing ahead of SCA enforcement - but to be completed no later than 16 October 2020.
EMV 3DS 2.2 builds on the features of EMV 3DS 2.1. Moving the ecosystem onto this specification will result in a better consumer experience, delivering the lower levels of fraud associated with SCA, while ensuring that transactional friction and abandonment rates are minimized.
