The new version (WLA-SCS: 2016) is now available
The WLA Security Committee (SRMC) has, over the last two years, been working on updating the WLA-SCS standard: 2012.

In addition, certain developments in the lottery industry, including the growth of games delivered by means of remote digital interactive services, require the integration of associated security and integrity parameters.
Edging up from a half-year on half-year increase in sales of 4.5%, lotteries around the world continued to gain momentum in the third quarter of 2016, resulting in an aggregate increase in sales of 4.9% for the period January–September 2016, as against January–September 2015. Nine-month on nine-month sales were up sharply in Africa, and were also up in North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Sales in Latin America held steady.
At the WLA biennial General Meeting, held as part of the World Lottery Summit 2016, a new WLA Executive Committee was elected and took office. Jean-Luc Moner-Banet, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Switzerland’s Loterie Romande, was re-elected as President of the World Lottery Association (WLA) for a third term.
