HID Global’s identification technologies products for banking and payment smart card industry have cleared MasterCard’s 2015 Card Quality Management (CQM) audit for dual interface inlays.
The specialised audit for dual interface inlays, launched recently by MasterCard, allows HID Global’s production site in Malaysia to carry the corresponding CQM Label.
The technology provider said that CQM ensures consistent and traceable quality to the card issuer.
Overall, HID Global’s contactless as well as dual interface inlays have been tested and audited for nine years.
HID Global vice president and managing director for identification technologies Marc Bielmann said: "Dual interface inlays are a core part of HID Global’s secure identity solutions for payment applications and the CQM certification provide solid affirmation of our dedication to consistently ensuring the highest quality for Genuine HID® products and solutions.
"The certification provides assurance to card manufacturers and the smart card industry overall, and we are pleased to be one of the first companies to offer products that have passed MasterCard’s latest Card Quality Management requirements."
