Denmark to Change Gaming Certification Standards

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week Denmark's gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden has announced that it'll be changing certification requirements for gaming license certification, with different changes to standards conformity groups and certification labs.

The regulator will change the ISO standard that can be claimed for inspections from ISO 17020 to ISO 17025, which has specifications for laboratory testing. Testing groups will no longer be required to have three years of operation to be eligible to test software in Denmark. There'll also be requirements that all slot spins last three seconds, in addition to other standards that'll need to be adhered to.

Live casino equipment will be required to be tested to make sure that shufflers and other equipment are completely random. Self-exclusion status storage requirements are also going to be removed, as the regulator says that the data should not be held longer than is necessary.

Spillemyndigheden is soliciting opinions from operators and gaming companies, and any changes will likely be implemented at some point next year.
