LAS VEGAS (August 11, 2016) – In the latest sign of its commitment and dedication to the Latin American gaming industry, Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) has successfully completed its application for renewal of its accreditation as an independent test lab in Colombia.
Recently, COLJUEGOS released a regulation establishing new requirements for laboratories in the jurisdiction. The regulation strengthens requirements independent test labs must meet to clearly demonstrate their capabilities to test for Colombia.
GLI has been accredited in Colombia since 2013 when COLJUEGOS established the process for laboratories to be accredited.
GLI’s Director of Latin America and Caribbean Government Relations and Business Development Karen Marcela Sierra-Hughes said, “We are thankful to COLJUEGOS, who had a very open consultation process prior the publication of the regulations that allow for transparency and labs to prepare properly for the submission process.
“We take licensing processes seriously and consider them a top priority in our business. We understand that by doing so, we show support for our supplier clients, so they can access all the jurisdictions in their commercial plans, and we also show our strong support regulators who are able to start receiving approvals to allow for operations of new games,” she added. With this milestone, GLI is ready to receive submissions for all games allowed in Colombia, including monitoring and control systems, tote systems, route operations, virtual sports betting and the recent authorization of Internet gaming.
GLI’s commitment to support regulators in their continued training and path to strengthen their regulations is also reflected at our Latin American and Caribbean Regulators Roundtable. The 2015 edition of the Regulators Roundtable was celebrated in Colombia where more than 90 regulators from 21 countries attended. This year, the event will take place August 24 and 25 in Curacao at the Curacao Marriott Beach Resort Emerald Casino. For registration and information, visit www.gaminglabs.com/latamrt2016.
