Compliance Testing Information
The NFC Forum and GCF are working together to support compliance testing of NFC Forum functionality for GCF certification. Per the terms of the agreement entered into, GCF may use NFC Forum developed test cases in its certification program provided that the testing is executed by NFC Forum licensed or Authorized Test Labs (ATLs). GCF RTOs that are not ATLs have the option to be licensed to use the GCF selected NFC Forum adopted test cases. Subject to successful completion of requirements similar to those in place for ATLs today, RTOs will be authorized to conduct the required NFC testing. The information below outlines the prerequisites for RTOs, necessary steps, the fee structure and other useful links.
NOTE: This program applies to GCF RTOs that are not NFC Forum Members. NFC Forum ATLs have a reduced fee schedule for quarterly testing services, and have unlimited access to the NFC Forum test specifications, plus they receive additional member benefits.
