The Belgian and Dutch gambling regulators have announced a partnership to share information, and strengthen regulatory and market monitoring capabilities.
Belgium’s gaming commission Kansspelcommissie (BGC), and the Netherland’s gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), will also be working together to ensure market integrity, improve anti-money laundering (AML) efforts, and tackle gambing addiction.
Regarding the collaboration BGC President, Magali Clavie, commented: “Online games of chance are offered across borders. As a result, there is a greater need for international cooperation between regulators on (online) games of chance. Information exchanges with foreign colleagues are always very instructive.”
While René Jansen, chairman of the board of directors of the KSA, added: “Such a memorandum of understanding forms a good basis for sharing knowledge, collaboration and a smooth exchange of information. At the same time, a clear signal is being sent to providers of games of chance that they are joining forces internationally.”
The KSA also has agreements in place with other regulators, including the Swedish Gambling Authority, Malta Gaming Authority, and France’s L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux.
On 1 April, the Dutch Remote Gaming Act is scheduled to come into force, allowing operators to submit applications for a license to offer online games of chance in the Netherlands.
