EMVCo established for NFC-enabled handsets a similar Type Approval process as for payment cards, creating a mechanism to test compliance with EMV specifications. This EMVCo Type Approval process provides an increased level of confidence that interoperability and consistent behavior between compliant applications are achieved.
UL’s engineers actively participate in the development of the ISO and EMVCo testing standards for contactless smart cards, and are extremely knowledgeable about the latest trends and developments. Being one of the first accredited EMVCo contactless laboratories, UL is well positioned to support you in interpreting these standards with its pre-qualification services during your product development cycle.
For the NFC interface of the handset, the following certifications are applicable:
- EMVCo Level 1 Analog
- EMVCo Level 1 Digital
