The International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA) is working alongside the Gaming Industry to adjust to our new normal. IGSA worked quickly early in the year to turn our 2020 strategy into one that would continue to support the industry during these challenging times.
For education, IGSA continues to produce the YouTube Webinar Series, “IGSA Conversations.” The program features nine educational webinars for a total of 24 videos. Members and non-members can enjoy the completed 13 videos and three live webinars on IGSA’s YouTube Channel. In addition, IGSA released a new product sheet, Covid-19 Operational Safety Enhancements, to protect regulators and reduce liability for operators. IGSA also released a new white paper, Secure Wireless connectivity for EGM and Systems, and authored a new Regulatory Handbook on IGSA Standards.
In technical work, IGSA is set to release two new standards. The long-anticipated Regulatory Reporting Interface standard (RRI) 1.0. RRI is a set of standardized reporting requirements that meet the core needs of the regulatory community while being flexible enough to allow extensions for jurisdiction-specific needs. The online gaming standard Third-Party Game Interface (TPI) 1.5, is the version of the standards now being used in the field which reflects input from the reduction to practice of TPI v1.0.
In partnership with GSA Europe and IAGR, IGSA first led the CEN Technical Committee 456 to a successful completion of the draft CEN Online Gambling Reporting standard – currently being translated into three languages. IGSA also contributed articles on regulatory issues to the IAGR newsletter for the regulatory community.
Finally, IGSA joins GSA Japan in welcoming its first Silver member, Mongterang International Inc.
