CPACE is a Generic and Open Card & Mobile Payment application specification created by ECPC, a new Technical Cooperation group composed of the leading European Card Schemes.

It is freely available for use by any card scheme transaction and provides independence for card issuers and schemes from proprietary contactless applications which are currently available.

A presentation on CPACE and a copy of CPACE Functional Specifications can be found in the list of documents below.
