KEOLABS selected by BCTC for EMVCo 3.0

As a leading provider of test tools for the EMV® Level 1 Contactless market, KEOLABS has been selected by BCTC for their EMVCo 3.0 test bench upgrading


16 October 2018, Montbonnot, FRANCE – EMVCo, after issuing the release v3.0 of its analog and digital test cases for cards, mobiles and readers, will soon start the qualification of testing laboratories for this new release. To keep its front-runner status, BCTC (Bank Card Test Center, China) has started the preparation of EMVCo 3.0 test bench upgrading very early in order to be in the first group of EMVCo 3.0 qualified laboratories. To achieve this and after evaluating the different solutions available on the market through an official tender, BCTC has decided to deploy KEOLABS solutions for its two laboratories of Beijing and Shenzhen. This includes 11 complete solutions for card (PICC) and reader (PCD) testing.

From now on, KEOLABS will assist BCTC to obtain the laboratory qualification for EMVCo 3.0 contactless card and terminal reader to enable BCTC to help customers in China and Asia get EMVCo 3.0 certification testing services as soon as possible.

“BCTC is the reference laboratory not only for China but also for Asia and its influence can be felt even beyond”, says Michael Leplatois, KEOLABS President. “Being able to work with BCTC is a great source of pride for KEOLABS”.
