The company was established in 2003 in the United Kingdom and introduced the first formal self-regulation program to the online gambling industry the same year. eCOGRA’s objectives are to bring about player protection, fair gaming and responsible conduct by operators, software providers and other relevant service providers.
In 2009 eCOGRA awarded the industry’s first ever mobile gambling provider accreditation to Spin3, and in 2017 it became the first independent online gambling test house awarded ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 certification by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service - the UK's National Accreditation Body) to offer accredited ISO/IEC 27001 certifications.
