Why is eCOGRA trusted as an auditing authority?
eCOGRA has itself sought accreditation in the form of an ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 certificate. This enables the organisation to perform legitimate and recognised third-party audits. Any successful audits will result in online gambling brands receiving ISO/IEC 27001:2013 accreditation.
What is the eCOGRA Safe and Fair Seal?
The Safe and Fair Seal is for operators that have proven an ability to ensure play protection, fair gambling, and all-round responsible behaviour. Operators must comply with eCOGRA’s Generally Accepted Practices (eGAP).
What does the eCOGRA Certified Software Seal mean?
This seal is geared towards software providers and will also call for them to adhere to eGAP requirements. Software providers shall be audited annually, with eCOGRA focusing on development, control, security, and other factors.
What are the eGAP requirements?
eCOGRA has produced a broad list of eGAP requirements that cover protection of vulnerable players, prevention of underage gambling, combatting of fraud and crime, privacy, player payments, fair gaming, responsible marketing, customer support, and a generally safe, secure, and reliable operating environment.
