Frequently Asked Questions (download pdf)
NFC Forum Members facilitate the development and market availability of products that comply with the NFC Forum specification(s) through participation in the NFC Forum Certification Program. Fully embracing the Certification Program provides differentiation for NFC Forum Members by shortening the product adoption process, lowering adoption costs, and making product implementations easier for partners to integrate.
Certification is granted through a top-notch testing process for implementations that meet NFC Forum Device Requirements. An NFC Forum device is a device capable of operating in NFC Forum Peer-to-Peer Mode and/or NFC Forum Reader-Writer Mode that may also support NFC Forum Card Emulation Mode. Companies cannot claim NFC Forum compliance without successfully completing the certification process.
