LAKEWOOD, N.J. (November 30, 2023) — Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) has been named an approved auditing body for International Betting Integrity Association’s (IBIA) Data Standards.

Leading global data providers Stats Perform, Sportradar and GRID are all currently accredited.
IBIA CEO Khalid Ali said, “GLI is a globally recognized leader in its field, and IBIA welcomes the company’s desire to gain accreditation as an auditing body for the Data Standards. It recognizes the importance of the Data Standards and to maintaining the integrity of the processes underpinning the creation of the sports betting market.
