EMV Integrated Test Solutions

Maintain 100% card personalisation quality control


100% EMV personalisation validation testing enables issuers and card bureaus to carry out 100% validation of cards and total quality control at the last stage of the personalisation process.

Barnes has developed QC validation systems integrated into card the personalisation systems of the major personalisation machine manufacturers. 100% of Cards can be validated without reducing production output.

Cards are validated against EMV, the Payment Scheme Application and the Issuer requirements for that type of card.

This prevents the costly production of invalid EMV cards and ensures that all cardholders receive usable cards, which work over magnetic stripe, contact chip and contactless chip interfaces.
