Japanese laboratory now delivers local terminal, kernel and mPOS developers comprehensive support for EMV testing.

FIME’s Japanese laboratory is the first in the country accredited to perform testing in line with the Discover Global Network Contactless Reader specification and the EMV® C-6 specification.

Contactless payment terminal, kernel and mobile point of sale (POS) vendors in Japan can now benefit from FIME’s extensive portfolio of testing services in local language and currency, streamlining the path to market launch.

FIME Japan is accredited to deliver testing support against EMV C-2, C-4, C-5 and now, C-6 Contactless Reader specifications, with global services supporting C-3 and C-7, helping local players meet demand for multi-scheme contactless and mobile payments.

“With international tourism rising and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics on the horizon, players targeting this market need to support EMV contactless mobile payments for multiple global payment schemes,” comments Stephanie El Rhomri, Vice President of Services at FIME. “Today, FIME Japan provides the widest range of payment testing and certification services in the country and we’re committed to further expansion. Offering a broad range of certifications for EMV and the major payment schemes under one roof enables quick, cost-effective and localized support for Japanese product vendors.”

The Japan laboratory has become the fourth of FIME’s global network accredited by Discover Global Network, with testing labs already established in the U.S, France and Asia.
