TÜV SÜD provides EMV Level 1 testing and contactless interface testing for Integrated Circuit (IC) Cards for VISA and JCB card systems to enable IC Card manufacturers to gain market access.
Like for EMV terminals, card testing is offered either as debug testing or as approval testing. While the scope and procedure of debug testing can be agreed between the customer and us, the approval testing is strictly subject to Visa’s approval requirements. Test data or documentation of debug testing cannot be re-used for the formal approval process.
