CPA Approval Process

CPA (Common Payment Application) approval is granted to a card product with an embedded CPA application. The CPA approval process attests the compliance of the card application to the EMV® CPA Specification. It also includes a security evaluation of the IC (integrated circuit) and the card on which the CPA-compliant application is installed.
