Extension to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 covers Lotteriinspektionen’s standards and technical requirements
UK-based independent testing laboratory eCOGRA has been granted the necessary scope extension to its ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS).
The extension includes the relevant standards and technical requirements for the Swedish market regulator Lotteriinspektionen and follows testing laboratory approval from PAGCOR in the Philippines market and in Jersey.
eCOGRA will be further able to service its clients in this market by leveraging the fact that it is the only online gambling testing laboratory authorised to offer operators and software providers accredited ISO/IEC 27001 certifications for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), by having an ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015, a press statement reads.
Shaun McCallaghan, eCOGRA Chief Operating Officer, commented: “We are extremely pleased to be able to assist our existing clients, and potential new clients, to comply with the necessary testing and certification requirements in Sweden.
“It is encouraging that a significant number of the largest multi-jurisdictional operators and software providers have already committed to using our services in this market, which reflects the quality of the service we’ve provided for these clients in other complex licensing jurisdictions”.
