FIME is back in our feed with an announcement regarding its Indian laboratory. The company, for which we know is a consultancy, testing, and certification specialist recently announced its Indian laboratory is one of the first is the country to receive EMVCo accreditation to perform EMV Level 2 Contact certification testing.

Local terminal manufacturers and kernel developers are now graced with the power to validate the compliance of their solutions within India, cutting time and costs significantly.

“Ongoing EMV migration and the digitization of the Indian economy are driving unprecedented demand from terminal manufacturers and kernel developers,” comments Prakash Sambandam, Vice President – South East Asia at FIME. “Having supported EMV certification with our debugging and consultancy services, this accreditation now provides our customers with on-the-ground support to streamline the certification process and accelerate time to market.”

The Indian laboratory is excited to have the ability to use FIME’s qualified test tool, EVAL, to perform all sorts of certification testing. Currently, the tool is available to purchase for in-house pre-certification testing to aid in the identification of issues that ultimately can be attributed as the cause for delays later in the process.
