Peru Greenlights Asensi Technologies and eCOGRA’s Certification Services

The two labs will offer their services to B2B and B2C companies in Peru

The Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism has authorized Asensi Technologies and eCOGRA to offer their certification services in the country.

Asensi Technologies Praises This “Significant Achievement”

According to Asensi Technologies, its launch in Peru represents a significant achievement and attests to the company’s commitment to excellence and quality. The accreditation, Asensi Technologies hopes, would allow it to strengthen its partnership with existing clients and forge deals with new ones.

Asensi Technologies’ chief executive officer, Aurora Merino Salas, commented on the achievement, sharing her excitement about the foray into Peru.

This accreditation not only demonstrates our ability and commitment to comply with local regulatory standards, but also, of course, opens up new business opportunities for us in the country.

Salas added that her team is excited to offer its assessments, and technical compliance and certification services to legal business-to-business and business-to-customer actors in Peru.

eCOGRA Enters Peru as Its 38th Jurisdiction

In the meantime, eCOGRA also secured authorization from the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism, allowing it to operate as a certification laboratory in the country as well.

As a result, the company will now offer its full suite of iGaming testing, inspection and certification services to local companies. This follows the launch of eCOGRA’s office in Colorado, further expanding the lab’s footprint. As a result, eCOGRA’s services are now available in 38 global jurisdictions.

For reference, Peru is the third South American country to regulate online gambling, following Colombia and Argentina. Under its regulations, all operators that offer iGaming and online betting must submit applications to the MINETUR by March 13.

eCOGRA’s chief technical officer, Bradley Khoury, commented on the matter, saying that this approval is a testament to his team’s unwavering dedication to the highest industry standards.

We are committed to working closely with Peruvian operators and software providers to ensure the integrity and fairness of online gambling offerings.

The recent expansion is in line with eCOGRA’s broader global strategy to promote best practices and safeguard player interests.

A year ago, eCOGRA also secured a license from the Michigan Gaming Control Board, allowing it to grow its North American footprint. The company’s services are also available in New Jersey.
