Compliance and Interoperability
UL ensures the security, compliance and interoperability of payment and transit smart card products.
Whether you are a card manufacturer or a card issuer, you need dedicated test services to make sure your card products are secure, compliant and globally interoperable. These test services range from evaluating the level 1 requirements of the implementation under test, up to the card personalization validation activities for different payment schemes and smart cards standards.
Issuers and vendors typically encounter a number of challenges when deploying new smart card products. Among them are:
- Different certifications applicable to contact and contactless cards;
- Several available global and local type approval programs when payment cards are deployed in multiple countries;
- Specific certification process and number of samples to be delivered;
- Additional activities for preparing certification like debugging and pre-testing work.
UL can help you addressing these challenges and solving the issues you might encounter as a vendor or issuer of payment and transit cards. Besides, we can support you in defining the best strategy for the required test and certification activities to achieve your business goals, such as time-to-market, product quality and cost reduction.
