Certification Process


We are an ISO/IEC 17065 accredited body that certify products that gives confidence to all interested parties, operators, services providers, regulators, and customers, that a product fulfils specified requirements, set by the Sweden Gambling Authority (Spelinspektionen aka SGA).

Certification is a means of providing assurance, a level of confidence and trust that is established by an impartial and competent assessment by a third party. We have developed a product scheme (GAEAB Sweden Online Gambling Systems Certification Scheme) ensuring compliance with all applicable SGA jurisdictional requirements.

We can also add value through our partners to assess games, RNG, RTP, gaming platform, backend/player management platform, information security and change management.


We follow a simple process that enables us to provide a comprehensive evaluation allowing us to certify your online gambling systems confidently and impartially.

The certification process contains three phases.


Within this phase the Selection functions are performed:

  • Initial customer enquiry, provision of information (GAEAB Sweden Online Gambling Systems Certification Scheme, GA Swedish ISMS Checklist and the Application form).
  • Application review to ensure completeness of information about the client and the product is sufficient to conduct the certification process. This ensures that scope is clearly defined, and competent resources can be allocated. Certification Agreement is prepared and provided to the client for review and acceptance.
  • Certification Agreement is prepared and provided to the client for review and acceptance.

Any issues identified will be redirected back to the audit team to be resolved and resubmitted. Once all information is complete, the Certification Manager arranges for the certification Panel to meet and review certification submissions.
  • To ensure independence and impartiality during the review process, the Certification Manager will excuse themselves if they have been involved in an audit and an alternative reviewed is appointed


Within this phase the Decision and Attestation functions are performed:
