Fime and Barnes' joint personalization validation tool achieved latest Mastercard qualification.

Fime and Barnes International announced that their jointly-developed personalization validation tool (PVT) is qualified against the latest Mastercard PVT Tool Release 2018 Requirements v11.3 March 2018, (“Mastercard Requirements”). Fime believes that the test tool significantly accelerates the certification and launch of secure chip products for issuers, card manufacturers and personalization bureaus. These products include contact, contactless and dual interface EMV® cards, as well as near field communication (NFC) and contactless-enabled solutions such as smartphones and wearable devices.

EMV migration is reaching critical mass globally, driven by increasing demand for advanced contactless and mobile payment solutions. Fime PerservalPro Issuer test tool has been qualified against the Mastercard requirements which allows issuers to ensure their product is compliant with the latest Mastercard requirements throughout the development process. This helps them to ensure a smooth, cost-effective route to market for their solutions.
