7 September 2023
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Gaming Laboratories International is now the first laboratory accredited in the State of Paraná and the first laboratory to be accredited following a formal laboratory accreditation process in Brazil. The milestone achievement builds on GLI's 25 years of service to the gaming industry throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
Loteria do Estado de Paraná made the announcement today, and the laboratory accreditation authorizes GLI to perform testing and certification of lotteries and fixed-odd sports betting based on technical standards required by LOTTOPAR.
"This notice, for the accreditation of testing and certification laboratories, for the lottery gaming industry, demonstrates the commitment of LOTTOPAR and the Government of Paraná to provide a safe and responsible environment for lottery operations, thus guaranteeing global safety standards," declared the Director-president of Loterias do Estado do Paraná, Daniel Romanowski.
"GLI has worked closely with regulators throughout Latin America and the Caribbean for 25 years, when we obtained the first laboratory accreditation in Peru, becoming the first country to establish the process in the Region. Today, we are thrilled to achieve another historic milestone in our journey and to further assist the industry to move forward in Brazil," said GLI Vice President of Latin America, Caribbean and Spain, Karen Sierra Hughes. "We are grateful to LOTTOPAR for their dedication to the regulated lottery and sports betting industry and for recognizing GLI for our accreditations, capabilities, and expertise."
GLI's experts ensure licensing is handled as a priority, resulting in fast response times to accreditation requirements established by jurisdictions. This is critical in supporting regulators' policy objectives and industry development timeframes and in supporting the suppliers and operators in their immediate testing and certification needs to achieve a fast and efficient entrance in the market.
