FIME announces today that its Japanese laboratory is the first in the country to be accredited by JCB to perform functional testing on contactless payment terminal kernels, in line with its Book C-5 specification which relates to the JCB’s payment scheme.

Global manufacturers of contactless payment terminals and mobile point of sale (mPOS) devices, in addition to kernel developers, can now validate the compliance of their products in FIME’s Taiwanese and Japanese laboratories.

EMVCo is the EMV® technical body which accredits laboratories and qualifies test tools that can be used to achieve EMVCo product certification. The EMVCo C-5 specification is one 'book' within a set of EMVCo Contactless Specifications which outline the minimum software functionality required - by each of the individual member-owners of EMVCo - for the effective operation and market interoperability of contactless payment terminals. Book C-5 specifically relates to the requirements outlined by global payment brand, JCB.

The laboratory will use FIME’s JCB-qualified test tool, EVAL, to perform formal certification testing. Manufacturers and developers can also take advantage of FIME’s technical consulting and training services to support them throughout the product development and certification process.

“Unlike other markets around the world, Japanese terminal manufacturers have an opportunity to implement both contact and contactless EMV, all in one go,” comments Arnaud Peninon, VP Global Laboratories at FIME. “Japanese EMV migration is gaining momentum and, given that the population is already familiar with ‘tap & pay’, manufacturers are keen to migrate quickly and with a minimum of fuss. As the first laboratory with this accreditation in Japan, and with the corresponding JCB accreditation already secured, we are ideally placed to support manufacturers and developers in this mission. We will also continue to expand the scope of our services to continue providing our customers with the broadest portfolio of services available.”
