Compliant & Simple
EMVCo established the Type Approval process for the testing and approval of payment acceptance devices in accordance with EMV Level 1 and Level 2 specification requirements.
The contact and contactless terminal-chip card interfaces must be certified following the EMV Level 1 requirements, including electrical and protocol testing in the contact side, and analog and digital testing for contactless interfaces.
Besides, terminal kernels must also go through official type approval. This Level 2 certification is managed by EMVCo for contact devices and by the specific schemes for contactless enabled terminals.
- UL offers dedicated test facilities for both pre-qualification and formal approval testing services. UL's accredited laboratories use EMVCo qualified testing tools and audited test platforms to perform testing against EMVCo Level 1 and Level 2 contact and contactless requirements.
