FIME Brings NFC Forum Certification Services to Japan

FIME, a testing laboratory in Japan, has been accredited to provide NFC Forum testing and certification services in that country. As a result, the company reports, Japanese card, terminal and mobile device manufacturers can now benefit from local end-to-end testing support.

"With the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on the horizon and government initiatives to increase cashless payments, contactless technologies are high on the Japanese agenda," said Takahide Kadoyama, FIME's country manager for Japan, in a prepared statement. "Since setting up our Tokyo office in 2013, we've played a significant role in the market's digital transformation. Delivering NFC Forum testing, in addition to our other services, is empowering local players to compete at home and abroad."

"From mobile devices to tags, an important objective of the NFC Forum is to create standards and specifications ensuring contactless devices operate seamlessly," said Paula Hunter, the executive director of the NFC Forum, in the prepared statement. "As a supporter of, and contributor to, our efforts for nearly a decade, partners like FIME are integral to the successful implementation of these solutions. It's great to see the growing global demand for this technology; this news is an important milestone for NFC, both in APAC and beyond."
