TÜV SÜD Zacta has been accredited by EMVCo for the new Mobile Level 1 test plan.
This means that TÜV SÜD in Japan can now offer type approval and debug services for the complete range of testing, including analogue and digital, as well as the new testing steps for performance and interoperability. These tests can all be performed under EMVCo in multiple environments, without the need to go through different schemes, including:
- Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC)
- Embedded Secure Element
- Host Card Emulation (HCE)
“With this accreditation, TÜV SÜD Zacta can assist manufacturers in confirming that their mobile handsets are in line with the industry in terms of transmission and processing times, and can also communicate effectively with existing payment terminals around the world,” explains Fabien Bocquet, Smartcard Systems Manager at TÜV SÜD Zacta. “Priority has been given to the automation and speed of our test system, with the aim of ensuring that every step of this approval is performed in a fast and accurate manner. This reduces the need for lengthy certification processes and therefore supports manufacturers in bringing their products to market faster.”
TÜV SÜD Zacta, was the first company in Japan to perform EMVCo validation, and has more than 10 years’ experience as a testing laboratory in the payment systems market, working closely with major manufacturers in the Japanese industry. TÜV SÜD Zacta’s test centres offer a range of testing facilities to provide customers with a more integrated one-stop solution to meet changing market requirements, including anechoic chambers, shielded rooms and open sites.
