We perform certification process for custom cards through our multi-flag PVT (Personalization Validation Tool) Tool, this equipment automatizes project tests and help issuers recognize errors and failures in the cards, thus helping correction of these issues.
Testers of standard EMV cards and mobile payment applications can use our tool to instantly retrieve tag and personalization data and detect parameters that do not conform to the schema specifications.
The main processes requested are CPV and VPA:
The CPV (Card Personalization Validation) process is a certification that card issuers and their related parties must obtain prior to issuing cards with a new chip capable of performing contact, contactless or dual-interface transactions. This certification is specific to flags that explain the CPV process as necessary. In case you or your customers need the CPV process, we at Bsmart Labs are available to carry out this process, as we are an internationally certified level 3 laboratory located in São Paulo – SP, Brazil.
The VPA process provides the certification for personalized cards, the same as the CPV, the change would be that some brands around the world do not accept the CPV process and it becomes necessary to carry out the VPA test. When cards are customized with new chips and are able to make payments through EMV standards and terminals, this process becomes necessary. Here at Bsmart Labs, we are always on hand to carry out this process as we are an internationally certified level 3 laboratory and located in São Paulo – SP, Brazil.
How these projects work (Cards and Terminals):
The tool uses its test files to carry out the specific processes for the desired brand, the quality control module (QC) allows us to carry out tests with quality assurance by quality analysis in addition to specific cases for each brand. Furthermore, the HOST simulation module allows cryptographic verification, issuer scripting and also online payment simulation.
