CFCF, the Common Functional Certification Framework, is a cross-border POI certification scheme for nexo implementations. CFCF established a liaison with the nexo organisation to join forces on functional testing, certification and test tools. Currently CFCF certificates for nexo implementations are required for scheme approval by Cartes Bancaires and the Girocard scheme. All other card schemes allow nexo implementations to be used for the acceptance of their payment cards.

The CFCF Consortium decided to rely completely on the new version 4.0 of nexo IS and the new test tools validated under CFCF rules in May 2020 from now on. Therefore certifications of products using older nexo versions or delta certifications for products having implemented older nexo versions will not be allowed anymore.
