Colombia Names GLI for First Gaming Test Lab

Testing company Gaming Laboratories International announced that it has received accreditation as a gaming test lab in Colombia by COLJUEGOS (Empresa Industrial Y Comercial Del Estado Administradora Del Monopolio Rentistico De Los Juegos De Suerte Y Azar), the country’s gaming and lottery regulatory entity.

The company is the first testing organization accredited in Colombia.

“GLI’s philosophy is to support regulatory development efforts in jurisdictions worldwide, and dedicating resources to achieve our recognition as a laboratory in a diligent manner is the best way to support the gaming regulator,” said GLI Director of Latin American Development Karen Sierra. “We are excited to be participants in the important regulatory development process that COLJUEGOS is going through and look forward to continuing to support their efforts.”

Colombia is going through a regulatory development process led by COLJUEGOS. The process includes adoption of the certification process, establishment of technical standards for the gaming and lottery industries, and interconnection of the gaming devices for tax reporting and regulatory control.
