Terminal ESD Evaluation

EMVCo established a Terminal ESD Evaluation process to be able to evaluate the level of protection against ESD of  Terminal devices.

The EMVCo process implemented performs ESD Evaluation of Chip and Magstripe interfaces of Terminal devices. Terminal vendors may submit their product at the same time as the EMVCo Level 1 Approval, however ESD proctection has no impact on the Level 1 Approval.
