FIME’s Japanese laboratory achieves AMEX & EMV C-4 accreditations

FIME’s Japanese laboratory achieves AMEX & EMV C-4 accreditations

Supports contactless payment terminal and mPOS manufacturers, and kernel developers, with certification projects

FIME is pleased to announce that its Japanese laboratory has achieved AMEX Enabled accreditation* for functional testing on contactless payment terminal kernels, in line with American Express’ Expresspay specifications. FIME has also been accredited by EMVCo for EMVCo’s Book C-4 specification, which defines the mandatory and optional functionality required when implementing terminal kernel 4. These latest accreditations enable contactless payment terminal and mobile point of sale (mPOS) manufacturers, as well as kernel developers, to validate their products in any of FIME’s French, Japanese and Taiwanese laboratories.

The separate accreditations from AMEX and EMVCo ensure the effective operation and market interoperability of contactless payment terminals by outlining the minimum software functionality required to operate effectively.

“Ongoing EMV migration and the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo are driving an increase in EMV chip deployments and the adoption of contactless payment technology across Japan,” comments Arnaud Peninon, VP Global Laboratories at FIME. “These latest accreditations are part of FIME’s ongoing strategy to support local terminal manufacturers and kernel developers with the widest test and consultancy portfolio available on the market. These certification processes foster stability and security across the region’s expanding contactless infrastructure.”

The Japanese laboratory will use FIME’s qualified test tool, EVAL, to perform formal certification testing. The tool is available to purchase for in-house pre-certification testing to help identify issues that can lead to delays later in the process.
