Thursday, 22 June 2017
UL is pleased to announce that its EMV Personalization Validation Tool has received a qualification by Discover® Global Network to test personalization validation of Discover and Diners Club chip cards.

The UL EMV Personalization Validation Tool is used for testing EMV payment products according to mandatory card personalization regulations from the major payment associations. Using this tool can help to smoothen the certification of your cards. The Discover and Diners Club validation module for the UL EMV Personalization Validation Tool, implementing tests for Contactless D-PAS and US Common Debit cards, has received qualification from Discover Global Network for testing personalization validation of Discover and Diners Club chip cards prior to sending cards to Discover Global Network for certification.

“We’re very happy to have received the qualification from Discover Global Network. UL strives to cover all major payment brands to create the most complete and comprehensive set of test tools available. We are confident that our customers will benefit from this qualification globally as it will help them reduce the time to market and increase their confidence during the Discover implementation,” comments Marcos Nunes, Director Products at UL’s Transaction Security division.

The UL EMV Personalization Validation Tool is a comprehensive test tool for issuers, card personalization bureaus and card manufacturers that want to validate the personalization of their contact/contactless payment cards and mobile payment applications. With just one click of a button, you can store, validate, retrieve, and examine all personalization data of EMV smart card applications such as chip, magnetic stripe, embossing data, asymmetric keys and PIN.

The validation functionality checks the correctness of a card application personalization and provides full, readable reports including explanations of errors and observations found. Any EMV card application, Secure Element application or cloud-based payment application can now easily be checked according to the latest (test) specifications from EMVCo, Discover, Diners Club International, American Express MasterCard, Visa, JCB, Union Pay and domestic payment schemes. Through the service portal, the tool is always up to date with the latest requirements and specifications from the payment schemes.
