On February 13, Asensi Technologies, a gaming certification laboratory accredited by the DGOJ in Spain, became the second company after GLI to obtain its registration and authorization as an accredited certification laboratory in Peru.

A few days later on February 16, eCogra followed suit with an announcement of their authorization by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (MINCETUR) to operate as a Certification Laboratory there, offering its full suite of iGaming testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) services.

Aurora Merino Salas, CEO at Asensi Technologies, said “This accreditation not only demonstrates our ability and commitment to comply with local regulatory standards but also, of course, opens up new business opportunities in the country. We are excited to be able to offer our assessment, certification and technical compliance services to authorized B2B and B2C companies in Peru, for all types of products. We are also thrilled to contribute, alongside the DGJCMT-MINCETUR, to the development and growth of this market as it begins its journey in regulation.

Asensi was established in 2017 as a certification laboratory in Spain.

In eCogra’s case, the Peruvian market brings the company’s total number of global jurisdictions to 38, which includes all key regulated South American jurisdictions.

Bradley Khoury, Chief Technical Officer of eCogra, expressed enthusiasm about the new development, stating, “We are thrilled to receive the green light to offer our services in Peru. This approval not only recognises our unwavering dedication to the highest industry standards but also reinforces our position as a trusted partner in the global online gaming sector. We are committed to working closely with Peruvian operators and software providers to ensure the integrity and fairness of online gambling offerings.”

Speaking on the new regulations late last year, Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru, Juan Carlos Mathews commented, “This is the first time that this important economic activity is regulated in the country. In South America, Peru becomes the third country to regulate it, after Colombia and Argentina (in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Cordoba, and Mendoza).”

The authorization comes just two weeks after the company’s announcement of the opening of its Colorado office and the appointment of several new senior team members based in the U.S., marking another significant milestone in eCogra’s compelling global expansion.
