eCOGRA, the independent online gambling testing laboratory, has announced the latest amendments to their eCOGRA Generally Accepted Practices (eGAP), which feature enhanced requirements in responsible gambling, customer due diligence, and information security governance, as well as improved advertising and marketing requirements of the European Gambling and Betting Association’s Code of Conduct on Responsible Advertising for Online Gambling.
The review to eGAP has been made as part of a continuous improvement initiative to ensure the requirements keep pace with international developments and provide ongoing protection to players and value to other industry stakeholders. Tex Rees, eCOGRA Executive Director said, “The updates are consistent with the requirements of EU jurisdictions and they complement the compliance initiatives that are already being undertaken by many of our seal holders.”
Founded in 2003 to establish and improve standards and player safety requirements in the online gambling space, eCOGRA acts as a regulatory partner to over 200 multi-jurisdictional operators, software partners and other relevant service providers in the online gambling industry. eCOGRA currently accredits and closely monitors a significant number of tier one online gambling operations owned by some of the world’s most established and successful companies, including 32Red, 888, bet-at-home, Betsson, Betway, Casino Rewards, Fortune Lounge, GVC, NetEnt and Kindred.
