The NFC Forum Compliance Program was established to facilitate interoperability between manufacturers. Activities encourage and facilitate development and market availability of products that comply with NFC Forum specifications. The NFC Forum Plugfest Program and the NFC Form Certification program are the cornerstones of the NFC Forum Compliance Program.
Because participation is available only to NFC Forum member organizations, companies interested in attending an NFC Forum Plugfest should visit How to Join for information on levels of membership.
NFC Forum Plugfest Events
NFC Forum Plugfest events are designed to create a safe real-world environment where developers can verify device interaction across product implementations. All testing is confidential.
Registration is now open for the next NFC Forum Plugfest happening 4 – 8 November, 2013 in Herndon, VA, USA. Please visit the Event Calendar page for full details.
NFC Forum members can engage in several ways during Plugfest events.
Testing Device to Device
The purpose of each Plugfest event is to bring a diverse group of participants together at a single location to verify the level of interaction of their products (from early prototype to final production devices) with those of other Plugfest participants.
The NFC Forum Interoperability Testing Library (IOT) of tags, smart posters, and NFC-enabled devices is available to Plugfest participants during the event. Participants can review the inventory to determine which samples are of interest. Learn more >
Testing with Conformance Tools
From time to time, compliance test tool vendors will bring prototypes of their tools to test new implementations. Learn more >
