At the heart of any certification program are the quality, reliability, and integrity of the test tools used for certification testing, as well as the accuracy and consistency of the test results that the tools are capable of producing.

To ensure that test tools are suitable for testing NFC Forum functionality, the tools will be subjected to a formal assessment or validation process conducted by an independent third-party laboratory, selected by the Forum for this purpose.

Once approved for use in certification testing, the tool will be listed on the NFC Forum website. To be considered for NFC Forum validation, providers of prospective test tools must apply in writing.

The following laboratory is authorized by the NFC Forum to validate Digital Protocol and Analog test tools:
