Why Test Cards?


Card quality and reliability is more important then ever!


Today, with increasing card usage and reliance, and the added expense of smart card (chip card) productions, there is no room for complacency. The image and performance of your card is a direct representation of your organisation.

Compliant cards perform for your customers!


The single common binding factor between all of our clients, is the desire to have ISO, IEC, MC CQM, ANSI or DIN Standard compliant cards in their customer's hands. It is a fundamental truth that a non-ISO standard card will not perform for a customer as well as an ISO Standard compliant card.

Preventative maintenance testing and an early commitment to quality reduces the cost of faulty cards providing savings and increased customer satisfaction.

Wherever you are, get your cards tested with us!


CTI is one of the few independent card testing laboratories in the world capable of testing cards to internationally recognised standards (e.g. ISO, MC CQM, ANSI). Certified to ISO/IEC 17025, the worldwide recognised standard for competence of testing laboratories, you can be assured of our capability.
