The Cairos system is similar to the German-Danish GoalRef prototype already approved by FIFA. Both use a magnetic chip inside the ball which is activated when crossing the goal line.
"We have met all of the requirements set out by FIFA for its goal-line technology which passed the test criteria and was subsequently granted an official licence," Cairos said in a statement Monday.
FIFA revealed last week it is seeking tenders to implement goal-line technology at June's Confederations Cup in Brazil and the World Cup a year later.
