UL is proud to announce that Discover® has accredited UL to perform functional type approval services for the Discover D-Payment Application Specification (D-PAS) on contactless card application. This service is now available from UL’s UK laboratory.

This accreditation will complement existing D-PAS contact card certification services and will greatly benefit our customers, as it will streamline the certification process, reduce time to market, and enable interoperable and compliant devices.”
