FIME empowers issuers with UnionPay card personalization validation testing services

Qualified test tool and accredited evaluation testing services enable issuers in China and overseas to significantly accelerate time to market for EMV chip cards 

FIME’s personalization validation tool (PVT) has been qualified by UnionPay to deliver PVT testing for its domestic and international markets. In addition, FIME has also received accreditation to deliver UnionPay card personalization validation testing services in line with UnionPay guidelines, and becomes the first accredited laboratory overseas. Issuers, card manufacturers and personalization bureaus around the world can now accelerate personalization validation for a range of secure chip products including EMV® chip cards, near field communication (NFC) devices and other contactless-enabled solutions, such as wearables.

FIME PersevalPro Issuer test tool, co-developed with Barnes International, automates the personalization validation testing process and enables testers to mitigate errors ahead of submission for formal certification. Combined with FIME’s consultancy and evaluation testing services, the tool – qualified across 13 international and domestic payment networks – gives issuers the most extensive brand personalization validation testing support on the market.

“EMV migration is gathering serious momentum worldwide, driven by the rising demand for smart cards and other contactless solutions, such as NFC mobile and wearable devices. For issuers, the challenge is on how to deliver these products on time,” comments Leo Jiang, Country Manager for China at FIME.

“This latest accreditation reflects our continued efforts to support the region and overseas to simplify EMV product testing and reduce time to market. With the rapid global growth of UPI in recent years, it was crucial to add this library to our testing portfolio to ensure we continue to deliver comprehensive testing and certification support to our customers,” adds Leo.

FIME is the implementation partner of choice for the financial services sector and is accredited by major international and domestic payment brands for card personalization validation services. It works with issuers around the world to ensure successful EMV issuance projects and to support the definition of EMV card profiles. Learn more about personalization validation.
