Collis is a MasterCard accredited Service Provider for delivering Card Personalisation Validation (CPV) Formal Approval Services. MasterCard imposes these services on issuers introducing a new MasterCard branded card.
The aim of Card Personalisation Validation (CPV) is to check that every chip card, which bears a MasterCard brand, complies with the MasterCard requirements and will be correctly accepted in terminals accepting MasterCard branded payment applications. Collis validates the chip card compliance to MasterCard requirements and identifies interoperability issues. After Collis has found the card product compliant, Collis will inform MasterCard, and the Issuer will get a CPV Report signed by MasterCard, allowing the card product to carry the MasterCard brand.
