April 03, 2019 – FIME is the only testing laboratory in Japan accredited to provide NFC Forum testing and certification services. 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,” comments Takahide Kadoyama, Country Manager – Japan, FIME. “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,” comments Paula Hunter, Executive Director, NFC Forum. “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.”

“Having worked with FIME for a number of years, we are pleased its Japan lab has become the first in the country to achieve this accreditation from NFC Forum. As an international industry leader in testing and certification for card payments using NFC, this expansion of services reflects FIME’s ongoing commitment to supporting the Japanese market and we wish them continued success,” comments Keiichiro Katayama, CEO at FIME’s customer Flight System Consulting (http://www.incredist.com).
