UL is proud to announce the launch of its new UL Pure Reader Functional Test Suite and Level 2 Contactless Gemalto Pure Terminal Type Approval services, which assists terminal vendors to validate their product according to the Gemalto PURE certification requirements.
PURE terminal and card specifications are available and used for payment implementations such as domestic schemes or financial inclusion programs. UL developed the UL PURE Reader Functional Test Suite that assists in checking the compliance of a PURE contactless reader kernel implementation with Gemalto PURE test specification for application level (level 2) type approval. In addition, UL also offers Level 2 Contactless Gemalto Pure Terminal Type Approval services to validate terminals according to the Gemalto PURE certifications.
Maxim Dyachenko, Director Products at UL’s Transaction Security division states: “We are pleased to keep extending our product portfolio and to support the Gemalto PURE solution in different ways. The UL PURE Reader Functional Test Suite will help domestic schemes, such as MEPS in Malaysia, as well as payment terminal and card vendors to implement Gemalto PURE based EMV compliant payment products. The test suite assists to identify whether all requirements are properly implemented and developed prior to certification, saving valuable time and costs for our customers.”

With Level 2 Contactless Gemalto PURE Terminal Type Approval services we enable local schemes to introduce EMV compliant products. New and innovative domestic schemes that want to implement Gemalto PURE products in its market, can benefit from UL’s readiness in tools & certification services, and offer these straight to its members.”
