UL is happy to announce that the Collis Brand Test Tool is qualified by JCB to simulate the latest Terminal Check for Implementation (TCI) test card.
The Collis Brand Test Tool, the all-in-one brand certification tool for the major payment brands, is now qualified by JCB to simulate the latest TCI test cards (version 1.2). This qualification helps acquirers in 24 million merchant locations in 190 countries worldwide to correctly accept JCB cards.
Fumihiko Mitsuoka, Senior Vice President Brand Infrastructure & Technologies at JCB commented: "We are pleased to have the Collis Brand Test Tool qualified for simulating TCI test cards. We believe this will greatly benefit acquirers worldwide with preparation for certification of their terminals. We look forward to work with UL on various other initiatives."
"UL continues to provide high quality test tools for the payment market. We are confident that our customers will benefit from this qualification as it will help them reduce the time to market, ease their TCI testing, and increase their confidence during the JCB implementation," adds Maxim Dyachenko, Manager Service Line Test Tools at UL Transaction Security.
The Collis Brand Test Tool has the ability to simulate any test card, both contact and contactless, and assists in performing the tests mandated by JCB and six other major payment schemes. Using card simulation takes away the need for physical cards that can get corrupted or lost. The Collis Brand Test Tool provides clear user guidance and it is fully aligned with the Test Specifications of the seven major worldwide payment schemes. It also provides full insight in the technical details of the communication between the card and the terminal on the one side and between the terminal and the network on the other side. This allows a tester to gain detailed insight in the behavior of the system from end-to-end.
