Chicago (IL), March 29th, 2016

Galitt is pleased to announce the expansion of its accredited terminal end-to-end certification services under Discover for Diners Club International participants.

This program facilitates EMV migration with accredited Service Providers that work with Diners Club participants to streamline D-Payment Application Specification (D-PAS) certification and bring terminals to market in a timely manner. The purpose is to ensure that payment stakeholders correctly implement D-PAS on their terminals and demonstrate that the deployed EMV-enabled terminal or ATM meets Discover or Diners Club requirements.

Loïc Berton, SVP Emerging Payments of Galitt US, said: “The recent global expansion in the Service Provider program to include Diners Club, is a perfect opportunity for Galitt to provide our full range of certification services in addition to our test tools on global scale. This is a new step in our work with Discover and Diners Club.”

“Galitt can now offer a one-stop shop for Discover and Diners Club enabled contact and contactless terminals, which includes D-PAS,” said Ellie Smith, Head of Chip Center of Excellence at Discover. “This expands the services available to acquirers and merchants, supporting our ongoing efforts to streamline certification and deployment processes globally for EMV.”
