CCD Approval Process

CCD (Common Core Definition) approval is granted to a card product with an embedded payment application. The CCD approval process attests the compliance of the card application to the EMV CCD Specification. It also includes a security evaluation of the IC (integrated circuit) and the card on which the CCD-compliant application is installed.
