UL is pleased to announce that the Collis Brand Test Tool is qualified by American Express for the simulation of AEIPS test cards.
American Express Integrated Circuit Card Payment Specifications (AEIPS) Terminal Specification is a set of implementation rules outlining the terminal functionality required to process American Express EMV transactions. Acquirers are required to certify their payment terminals with American Express after implementing AEIPS. The Collis Brand Test Tool supports AEIPS allowing acquirers to test their payment terminals against the requirements from American Express.
The Collis Brand Test Tool is the all-in-one brand certification tool for the major payment brands and has the ability to simulate contact and contactless test cards. Card simulation takes away the need for using physical cards that can get corrupted or lost. The Collis Brand Test Tool provides clear user guidance and is fully aligned with the Test Specifications of the seven major payment schemes worldwide. 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.
“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 device testing, and increase their confidence during the American Express implementation,” adds Maxim Dyachenko, Manager Service Line Test Tools at UL’s Transaction Security division.
The Collis Brand Test Tool optimizes the test execution process by means of test automation, card simulation and appropriated authorization host behavior. Through the new MyCollis service portal, the tool is always get up to date.
