EMVCo boosts domestic payment systems with terminal integration testing framework

Wednesday 1 April 2020 06:58 CET | News

EMVCo has been encouraging domestic payment systems (and other similar entities) to use its new EMV terminal integration testing framework.

This framework aims to reduce the time needed to get new and updated acceptance terminals live and operational. The global technical body has rolled out its new Level 3 (L3) Participant System Identifier (PSI) service. This allows domestic payment systems to include their own terminal integration testing requirements using an EMVCo pre-assigned identifier in an EMVCo qualified test tool, alongside those of the international payment systems, providing full testing synergy, according to the official press release.

These tools can then be used to automate the selection and execution of applicable tests that confirm the integration of a new or upgraded (hardware and/or software) EMV payment or cash dispensing terminal with any merchant or bank system. This process supports end-to-end transaction acceptance testing before use.
