Applus+ was already accredited by AMEX as security laboratory for Mobile products, HCE products and Chip Card products
Barcelona, December 2016 - Applus+ Laboratories announced today that it has achieved AMEX Enabled accreditation* to conduct functional evaluations of card products. The scope of the accreditations covers both contact and contactless card evaluations.

AMEX Enabled
AMEX Enabled is an accreditation that signifies a product or service is approved for use on the American Express Global Network based on meeting American Express specifications, security and compliance requirements.
The AMEX Enabled Program is a convenient way for companies to get the information they need to develop a product or service that is compatible with the American Express Global Network. Once a company’s product/service is fully certified with American Express, it is eligible to use the AMEX Enabled mark.
AMEX Enabled products are listed on, allowing issuers (financial institutions that provide cards to consumers) and acquirers (financial institutions that enable merchants to accept payments) to confidently select technology that is compatible with the American Express Global Network.
* AMEX Enabled accreditation identifies third-party products or services that meet American Express requirements. See for more details. Any listing, designation, approval or certification by American Express does not constitute a guarantee, endorsement, or warranty of a third-party’s product, service or performance. Products or services will require certification in order to be allowed for use by an issuer, acquirer or provider on the American Express Global Network.
