The online gambling industry cannot function without the help of certification agencies that test and approve service providers. eCOGRA is an independent certification agency that started its activity with the accreditation for online casinos and now covers all online gambling verticals and also software providers and affiliate programs. Besides that, the agency is also involved with setting regulatory benchmarks and dispute resolution.

Recently, eCOGRA announced that it has successfully obtained an extension to its International Organization for Standardization ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation. The certification agency obtained this extension after a rigorous assessment made by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service. This upgrade of resources will enable eCOGRA to take a leading role in the recently opened Denmark online gambling market. eCOGRA now meets the requirements of the Technical Standards and Change Management Programme of the Danish Gambling Authority. According to eCOGRA’s CEO, the agency can now offer its services in Denmark’s online gambling market. Thereby, eCOGRA can perform certification work and provide guidance to online gambling operators that are already licensed or for those who are applying for licenses to operate at the Danish regulatory authority.

The five certification categories formulated by the Danish regulatory authority are: gambling functions, business functions, preventive measures to counter money laundering of proceeds and financing terrorism, vulnerability and penetration testing and change management. eCOGRA’s representative also pointed out that many of the operators on the Danish online gambling market are eCOGRA certified in other jurisdictions. Due to the agency’s accumulated experience in this field, eCOGRA’s CEO is confident of securing assignments from about one third of the licensed operators in the Danish internet gambling market.

Many other countries through their online gambling regulatory authorities have approved eCOGRA for certification of its licenses. Italian regulator AIMS gave eCOGRA a similar accreditation to operate on their local market. eCOGRA holds approval from Spain’s internet gambling regulatory authority too. Also, the agency’s CEO was personally nominated among the top regulatory specialists by the business publication Gaming Intelligence. The constant expanding of the regulatory scene in Europe will surely generate more business for agencies involved in this process, such as eCOGRA.
