Dutch Gambling Authority Kansspelautoriteit and The Malta Gaming Authority have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance collaborative and aiding efforts.
As part of the MoU, both entities will collaborate and aid each other by sharing each authorities best practices and information. The MoU will help in supporting its responsibilities at law, while also allowing both authorities to engage in discussions on policy matters of interests.
Expressing his satisfaction at signing the MoU, Rene Jansen, Kansspelautoriteit’s chairman, stated: “I am delighted that agreements with international regulators, like the Malta Gaming Authority, are formalised and captured in Memorandums of Understanding.
“These MoU’s are a solid basis to share knowledge, to cooperate, and to smoothly exchange information. At the same time operators will be receiving a clear signal that hands of regulators will be joined internationally.”
From signing the MoU, both authorities will gain benefits due to common objectives of preventing criminality, making sure gaming is fair and transparent, and protecting vulnerable persons against gambling addiction.
MGA’s chief executive officer Heathcliff Farrugia added: “This MoU with the Dutch Gambling Authority is another step in the right direction, and follows other similar MoU’s which the MGA signed with other regulators over the past years.
“Our relationship and cooperation with Kansspelautoriteit has already yielded tangible results in the past, and with this MoU, apart from formalising such relationship, a stronger collaboration at an international level is also ensured.”
