The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) is a group of 45 gambling operators that have agreed a mandate to protect its members from corruption and accounts for a combined $137bn in global betting handle per year – as well as 50% of all regulated commercial betting activity.
Andrew Ashenden, Chief Betting Officer at Stats Perform, said: "Stats Perform is a long-term advocate for the highest standards of integrity and quality in sports data because we know it is critical for the accuracy and veracity of sports competitions and the betting markets that cover them.
“We were proud to become the first company to champion and receive the IBIA accreditation. Achieving the standard for an unprecedented third year in a row affirms the reason Stats Perform's Betting and Opta sports data is chosen by the world's leading sports federations, sportsbooks and pricing providers: it powers trusted experiences for millions of global sports bettors."
Meanwhile, IBIA CEO Khalid Ali, added: "Stats Perform's successful third-year renewal of the Data Standards accreditation demonstrates the value leading sports data providers see in them. IBIA members also view the Data Standards protocols as an essential initiative, which has a positive impact on the sports betting environment."
Recently, Jack Entertainment announced it had joined the IBIA, shortly after it launched its sportsbook in Ohio.
BetJack is authorised to operate in the Buckeye State, which launched legal sports betting at the start of this year.
