How To Participate

To achieve the GlobalPlatform qualification status for test tools or become a qualified laboratory, your organization must be a GlobalPlatform Full Member or Participating Member in good standing.

Test tool providers must also commit to and participate in the TestFest process: a series of meetings that bring together GlobalPlatform member organizations to establish relationships and undertake tests between secure chip products and test tools in a variety of multi-vendor and multi-tool combinations.

In addition to the opportunity to contribute to this initiative, there are many other benefits to becoming a GlobalPlatform member.
