BMM Testlabs has announced the release of a new, free-of-charge verification tool using GSA GAT Directory Signature Calculations.


In April of this year the Ohio Casino Control Commission in the US requested that all certified independent testing laboratories adhere to the Gaming Standards Association G2S GAT Windows Directory Signature standard when providing verification signatures of gaming products.

BMM has implemented this standard and has gone one step further by implementing it in its free verification tool, BMM Signatures. Travis Foley (pictured), COO at BMM, said: "Having this standard in place allows the regulator to utilise one tool for signature verification regardless of which testing laboratory tested the product.

“Regulators, operators and manufacturers alike should not be burdened with utilising multiple tools to accomplish the same task. I applaud the Ohio Casino Control Commission and specifically the commission's manager of compliance and gaming, Chris Fleenor, for taking another step toward industry standardisation.

“I would encourage all regulatory bodies to consider adopting this standard. Doing so will create significant efficiencies for the regulator and operator during inspections of gaming products and will eliminate the need to pay for such a tool."
