July 20, 2015

InfoGard is now accredited by EMVCo to conduct Terminal Type Testing and will immediately begin offering Level 2 contact testing and pre-evaluation services.  EMV pre-evaluation services include debug testing and compliance consulting.  Additional EMVCo testing services are being planned to support our payment customers.

To address the EMV liability shift mandate in October, InfoGard recognized the need for domestic EMV Terminal Type Approval testing service to support our PCI PTS Terminal customers. In addition, InfoGard also provides security testing services to mobile device manufacturers, whose devices can be used to perform EMV transactions.  Our accreditation marks another important milestone for InfoGard as the only U.S. laboratory approved to conduct PCI PTS and EMV Terminal Type Testing. 

Doug Biggs, Chief Technology Officer at InfoGard Laboratories, said of the accreditation: “InfoGard is excited to be able to offer our EMV testing services to our PCI PTS terminal and mobile device customers.”
