Collis announces today that Visa has confirmed the GCCV implementation for use in connection with Visa Inc. programs in the Collis EMV Personalisation Validation Tool.
The Collis EMV Personalisation Validation Tool (Collis EMV PVT) is a market leading tool designed to check if your cards are personalised correctly. The Collis EMV PVT gives you reliable quality control over the personalisation process. As a Card Issuer or Personalisation Bureau, you can ensure that your cards have been developed according to the mandatory card personalisation regulations from the payment associations. You are able to check the consistency between magnetic stripe data, contact chip data, contactless chip data and embossing data. The Collis EMV PVT has an easy-to-use user interface and is customisable. It can be used during development and production. This helps to ensure that you have correctly personalised and interoperable cards.
The new Visa Module in the Collis EMV PVT implements the Visa Global Chip Card Personalisation Validation (GCCV) version 1.0 test specification. This test specification focuses on the correct personalisation of Visa Credit, Visa Electron, Plus, and dynamic passcode applications, both for contact cards (VIS 1.4) and for contactless cards (VCPS 2.0, qVSDC, MSD).
Dirk Jan van den Heuvel, CEO Collis, adds: "Collis is very pleased that the Collis EMV PVT's GCCV implementation has been confirmed by Visa for use in connection with Visa Inc. programs. Collis' EMV Personalisation Validation Tool continues to offer the latest in comprehensive testing for card personalisation. With extensive coverage of Visa test scenarios, this test tool is a must have for those parties who wish to ensure correct card personalisation and enable worldwide acceptance".
