FIME India achieves EMVCo Contact Level 2 accreditation

Bangalore, India - 20 March 2017

FIME is amongst the first to secure the accreditation within India, enhancing local support for EMV certification 

FIME, the leading consultancy, testing and certification specialist, today announces its Indian laboratory is one of the first in the country to receive EMVCo accreditation to perform EMV®* Level 2 Contact certification testing. Local terminal manufacturers and kernel developers can now validate the compliance of their solutions within India, reducing certification time and costs.

“Ongoing EMV migration and the digitization of the Indian economy are driving unprecedented demand from terminal manufacturers and kernel developers,” comments Prakash Sambandam, Vice President – South East Asia at FIME. “Having supported EMV certification with our debugging and consultancy services, this accreditation now provides our customers with on-the-ground support to streamline the certification process and accelerate time to market.”

The Indian laboratory will use FIME’s qualified test tool, EVAL, to perform formal certification testing. The tool is available to purchase for in-house pre-certification testing to help identify issues that can lead to delays later in the process.
