To achieve Payment Scheme certification Banks, Card Manufacturers, Personalisation Bureaus and Test Laboratories must ensure their cards comply with EMV and the respective Payment Schemes specifications. Obtaining qualification for contact and contactless card and mobile payment applications can be a time consuming and costly process. To reduce the risks of failure, cards can be pre-validated prior to submission to the Payment Scheme using Certification Test Modules from Barnes. Approved by the Payment Schemes, the Certification Test Modules use the same detailed and rigourous tests they use to perform qualification tests on cards and mobiles.

Each Payment Scheme has its own set of globally consistent personalisation data validation criteria, which financial institutions, retailers and other Issuers must adhere to

Barnes works closely with the National and International Payment Schemes to ensure its card personalisation validation test modules meet the latest specifications and are kept up to date. Each test module complements EMV Card Validation Test Tools, the CPT 3000v3 and CAT 3000v3, to allow users to use tests specified by the respective payment scheme to validate their applications prior to formal certification.
