Enex TestLab will now join a select group of testing facilities licensed to perform certification tests and reports for the gaming sector.
The testing facility has recently obtained licenses to test electronic gaming certification across the gaming jurisdictions of New Zealand, Australia and Macau.
Matt Tett, Director of Enex TestLab said the company’s experience in hardware, software and system testing for government and corporate organisations across multiple sectors, would benefit its gaming customers.
Enex Testlab tests and provides reports on machines for certification in gaming jurisdictions.
“Say if it’s a [gaming] system in Macau, that game may already be well developed and the client may want to buy it, but it may not actually be certified for that jurisdiction.
“So what the manufacturer has to do is make sure it’s certified so they come to us,” Tett explained to Computerworld Australia.
As gaming is a highly regulated and relatively small sector (with limited companies licensed to test machines), he said the process of applications for testing licences in Australia, New Zealand and Macau took four years.
But the company is still looking to expand to other gaming jurisdictions.
“Each one of those [jurisdictions], we had to apply for individually as a license for testing.
“At the moment, we’re only focused on Australia and New Zealand. We also have [license in] Macau and we have an application in the UK as well.
We’re now embarking on looking at some South American jurisdictions, so Columbia and those areas,” Tett said.
