Fime becomes first European lab accredited by NVLAP for biometric testing.

December 12, 2023

Fime becomes first European lab accredited by NVLAP for biometric testing.

Fime France has become the first European lab and the third worldwide to be accredited by National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NIST)’s National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) for biometric testing (NVLAP Lab Code 600365-0). With this accreditation, Fime can help biometric solution providers to demonstrate the quality and reliability of their solutions. It will also support solution buyers, integrators and platform brand owners to evaluate the performance and security of biometric solutions prior to implementing them in their products, bringing confidence to end users. 

This latest achievement reinforces Fime’s expertise in the evaluation of biometrics, as well as its conformance with NIST Handbook 150 and ISO/IEC 17025. Fime can now support customers in verifying that solutions meet standards for performance matching accuracy (ISO/IEC 19795) and presentation attack detection (ISO/IEC 30107). This testing goes beyond face and fingerprint recognition to include other biometric technologies, such as voice, palm vein or multimodality.

The role of biometrics in consumers’ daily lives continues to grow. However, it is crucial that the convenience of these solutions does not come at the expense of security.

This is especially important as AI technology continues to evolve and deepfakes become more common. And to achieve widespread adoption, it’s just as important to ensure that biometrics are easy to use and any environmental or demographic bias is minimized.
