Spillemyndigheden, Danish Gaming Authority, and the gambling regulator, recently came up with a new announcement. It has announced that it will change the requirements for its online gambling certification. Altering the conditions for the testing labs will be part of this major shift.
Many changes are now more open for consultation that the regulator will hold along with stakeholders. The Danish authority is stating that the stakeholders will be able to submit their opinion for the new set of rules.
The former test companies had the allowance for using the ISO 17020 conformity assessment. It measured how a company opts for inspections. It was a part of the accreditation. The test companies will now go under various new changes. ISO 17025 is focusing on various specifications and conditions for testing in laboratories.
At the same time, the Danish authorities have also canceled the condition under which these test entities must have three years of experience for deeming that. So, the involvement with a company is now deemed more important than the time when the company was established, as per the explanation of the authority.
A minimum of any changes will be included in the requirement of the staff experience. Along with that, it is no longer necessary for the test companies to have ISO accreditation for performing the verification penetration testing, which checks for all vulnerabilities present in a product.
In 2022, the requirements for Danish online certification will thus change. The Danish regulator said that the certification is having enough approval. All of its licenses have been Approved Vendor Scanners. In the changes of the document, there are several standards for testing that are getting addressed. Besides the equipment for live dealers, there will be a new requirement for roulettes and apparatus for testing card mixing. The Rule about three seconds is about ensuring that each event of the casino game must take a long time, which is going to get a transfer from the list of inspection requirements to the list of testing.
On a side note, the general inspection for standards will also get altered along with testing. The documents regarding this have been changed. It lacked the inclusion of bingo in its peer-to-peer gaming section.
The procedures and requirements for the gaming system storing the self-exclusion status of customers have also been removed after the establishment of the authority for the information that must not be kept longer than necessary. The expected date of implementation is not yet confirmed, but it will take place in 2022.
