eCOGRA, the independent testing laboratory, has announced it is ready to commence testing and certification of operators applying for online gambling licenses in Sweden. This follows the granting of the necessary scope extension to its ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to include the relevant standards and technical requirements from Sweden Lotteriinspektionens.

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.

Shaun McCallaghan, eCOGRA Chief Operating Officer, said “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”.

McCallaghan added that eCOGRA has also recently obtained testing laboratory approval from PAGCOR (Philippines) and in Jersey, and the company remains committed to servicing its clients in each of the regulated markets where they choose to license their online gambling products.
