Independent testing laboratory eCOGRA has been officially authorised by the Secretaria De Prêmios e Apostas to provide its igaming testing, inspection and certification services in the country of Brazil.

With the authorisation, eCOGRA can now operate as a certifying entity for betting systems, live gaming studios and online games in the Brazilian market, expanding its igaming services in regulated markets globally. 

As such, operators and developers in the country can now use eCOGRA’s services to make sure they are compliant with the country’s laws and regulations.

“We are thrilled to bring over two decades of expertise in online gambling certification to the vibrant market of Brazil,” commented Bradley Khoury, Chief Technical Officer of eCOGRA.

“This approval from the Secretaria De Prêmios e Apostas of the Brazilian Ministry of Finance is not only a testament to our unwavering commitment to the highest standards of competence and quality but also marks an exciting new chapter for eCOGRA. 

“We look forward to working closely with Brazilian operators and interested parties to ensure a safe and fair gaming environment for all players.”

The approval in Brazil is a continuation of eCOGRA’s expansion across South America, as the independent testing laboratory was approved by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism in February to operate as a certification laboratory in Peru.

The organisation operates in 39 online gambling jurisdictions, including Buenos Aires City and Province, Peru, Mendoza, Colombia and Brazil in South America.  

Khoury added: “Brazil offers a dynamic and rapidly growing market and we are excited to contribute to its development.

“Our goal is to ensure that Brazilian players have access to certified igaming experiences, akin to what has successfully been implemented in other highly regulated jurisdictions.”
