Gaming Laboratories International has become the first organization approved as an authorized test laboratory in accordance with the Gaming Standards Association’s new Certification Program.

The approval is a milestone in the company’s history and will allow GLI to provide certification reports to clients seeking approval of gaming equipment that supports GSA’s G2S, S2S and Transport standards.

GLI currently is the only organization  able to offer this new testing service for the new standards published under the GSA Certification Program.

“This is an exciting time for the gaming industry,” said GSA President Peter DeRaedt, “and we are very pleased with the launch of the Certification Program, which will give operators peace of mind in choosing new products. We have a long and successful history with GLI, and we are thrilled for them to have received their approval, to be GSA’s first recognized testing agency, and to have them lending their expertise to the program.”

The Certification Program is designed to provide the gaming industry a level of assurance that products correctly implement GSA standards, ensuring consistent implementation of standards and improved interoperability.

GLI President James Maida said the company is pleased to be the first organization in the world able to offer the new testing service to the industry.

“Our seeking this certification clearly shows our commitment to provide the industry with the highest quality of testing available,” he added.
