The document below provides more detailed information about the process to get a 3-D Secure product approved.
3-D Secure Admin Process
Step 1: Registration
The product provider shall fill out the Registration form. Once EMVCo reviews and accepts the forms, the product provider will receive a contract. Once the contract is signed, EMVCo will assign a product provider registration number.
Step 2: Product Declaration
The product provider shall select a laboratory and execute bilateral, required agreements and contracts. The product provider shall complete an Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) document in which it will provide detailed information about the product and supported features. The laboratory will validate and submit the ICS to EMVCo for verification.

Step 3: Product Validation
Once EMVCo has accepted the ICS, product testing will be performed. The test results are documented in test reports that the laboratory sends to the product provider.

Step 4: Product Approval
Upon receipt of the test reports from the laboratory, the product provider decides if it will submit the product to EMVCo for approval. Assuming so, the product provider shall complete a Request for Approval form and ask the laboratory to send the test reports to EMVCo. EMVCo will grant a Letter of Approval (LOA) when a test report demonstrates sufficient product conformance. Applicable fees must be paid before the LOA is granted.
