Authorized for use in Certification: April 2018

Compliance Documentation Devices Requirements (Version 2.0)

Devices Requirements v2.0 adds two new device classes: Reader and Tag. The release also includes support for Type 5 Tags, clarifications and corrections to the test cases and associated testing documentation.

Note: Starting in December 2019, NFC Forum enables the certification of Tag devices with tiny antenna sizes by making testing against Reference Poller 0 optional. This policy change has been implemented with an update of the ICS that now includes the capability “TAG-P0” which, when set to “N”, will trigger the waiver request automatically and will be handled by the Certification Administrator. The Certificate will indicate whether a tag has been certified against Reference Poller 0 or not.
