Di verse regulatory challenges in Europe 's evolving online gambling industry require a specialist partner to ensure compliance on all levels across numerous markets

The regulatory auditing and testing agency eCOGRA has been selected by leading Stoke-on-Trent based online gambling group bet365 to serve as its third party regulatory testing and certification partner.

eCOGRA's 17025:2005 testing laboratory accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and extensive mix of professional Big 4 audit firm, IT and industry experience, ideally places the firm to perform compliance and audit services across the diverse spread of regulation and testing principles and methodologies being adopted throughout Europe.

Andrew Beveridge, the chief executive of eCOGRA, welcomed the appointment saying: eCOGRA specialises in providing services to tier 1 software suppliers and operators, and bet365 certainly meets this requirement. eCOGRA looks forward to assisting bet365 with future certification endeavours while ensuring the group remains compliant in the markets in which it currently operates.

Steven Degg, regulatory compliance and information officer of bet365 commenting on the appointment said: bet365 selected eCOGRA based on the depth of skills, experience of their resources and a successful track record in providing compliance services to other leading operators and software suppliers. bet365 successfully submitted challenging Spanish and Danish certifications in partnership with eCOGRA, and we look forward to working with eCOGRA as we expand into new markets going forward.
