SD Express/UHS-II Verification Program (SVP)

SVP verified products are listed to give consumers and businesses higher confidence of a products' conformity to the SD standards test guidelines.

SVP Overview

The SDA Compliance Committee has developed the SD Express/UHS-II Verification Program (SVP).  This new verification program checks the electronic interface of UHS-II and SD Express cards/products, giving consumers and businesses higher confidence that devices passing SVP meets the interface standards, while ensuring compatibility based on the Physical Test Guideline.

Once approved, the list of verified devices will be available to SDA members and the public on the SDA public website so that buyers/consumers can choose products with a higher confidence.


Eligible devices are Card/Host/Ancillary products that use SD Express and/or UHS-II.  SVP is a voluntary program available exclusively to SDA members.

Designated Testing Lab:

Granite River Labs (GRL) with labs located in Asia and US.


The SD Association will subsidize 75% of the testing cost for the first members that take advantage of this program.  There is a limited budget* for subsidizing, so take advantage of this offer while it lasts. GRL will invoice your company directly after testing is complete.  We will notify you when the budget is depleted.


Member Cost in USD (after 75% subsidized amount by SDA):


•   UHS-II products:  $900 for the first card/host device, and $600 for additional UHS-II devices, if submitted at the same time.

•   SD Express products:  $1,500 for the first card/host device, and $1,100 for additional SD Express devices, if submitted at the same time.


*Note: The allocated budget for subsidization is limited and the above pricing will only be available until that budget is fully utilized, allowing for about 11 UHS-II devices and 14 SD Express devices.

Test Shuttle 2022:

GRL is offering a discount to members for volume testing. This discount program is called the Test Shuttle. It allows a group of members who test the same product types together during the same time period.  The fourth Test Shuttle starts October 10 through November 4, 2022.  This discount requires two or more members to test the same product type – UHS-II or SD Express. The more members testing the same product types, the greater the discount. Please note that if you submit an application and then cancel that you will be charged a cancellation fee to make up for the difference in the volume testing discount — therefore, if you submit an application, please be sure that you planned Device Under Test (DUT) will be available.

The SDA will have four Test Shuttle periods in 2022 , planned to occur in January, April, July, and October. Here are the planned application dates for each of the 2022 test shuttles:
