NSI Acceptance Testing



When the NASPL Verification Logo, along with this label, is used on, or in relation to, a business practice registered as conformant to this Conformance Requirements Document, it must be accompanied by an attribution in the form defined in Schedule 4 of the applicable North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries Trademark License Agreement.


This Conformance Requirements document is for the business practices of organizations performing acceptance testing to confirm that a product delivered to a lottery meets all of the agreed requirements, and thus is acceptable for deployment in the lottery environment. NSI Acceptance Testing covers the Acceptance Testing process from test planning, through test execution and acceptance of the product.

The applicability of NSI Acceptance Testing extends to all areas of software and/or hardware production for the lottery industry, including:


The conformance requirements are derived from the following two Best Practices:

A conformant practice must demonstrate that it:

Appendix A of each Best Practice provides a checklist of the mandatory, recommended, and optional requirements. This Appendix should be considered normative with respect to the assigned Practitioner for each requirement, but in the case of any conflict between the content of the checklist and the main body of the Best Practice, the Best Practice shall take precedence.




An assessment report, summarizing the outcome of the assessment process, from an assessor accredited by the Certification and Verification Authority for assessment of conformity to the specified Best Practices.

Documents, as required by the Certification and Verification Authority from the set defined under Lottery Requirements in Appendix B of each of the Best Practices, which provide evidence that the Best Practices have been implemented.

A Conformance Statement, which shows how the practice meets the conformance requirements defined above.


As this is the first version of these Conformance Requirements, there are no migration issues.
