UL gets EMVCo accreditation for mobile payments testing

UL has extended its testing services to include Application Activation User Interface (AAUI) and Proximity Payment System Environment (PPSE) testing, enabling payments technology providers to ensure their products adhere to EMVCo’s Contactless Mobile Payment Product Type Approval requirements.


“We are very pleased to have gained this accreditation, which is becoming increasingly valued and recognised around the world,” says UL vice president Stephen Kirk. “The importance of EMVCo standards and all other industry bodies is essential to ensure contactless technology becomes a reality with a secure, interoperable and stable infrastructure.

“Being an accredited lab allows us to expand the services we offer our customers and ensure smooth and successful product launches. In UL our goal is to help making mobile payments possible.”
