The national regulators, L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) of France and Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) of Holland, have agreed to work together on a number of issues.
A memorandum of understanding intended to “enhance the efficiency of regulation” was signed by ANJ President Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin and KSA Chairman René Jansen.
The agreement includes cooperation on topics ranging from money laundering and funding of terrorism to control of player accounts, monitoring of ads and security of players.
Within France, the newly created ANJ has also signed an agreement to cooperate and exchange information with the Service Central des Courses et des Jeux (SCCJ), the national police unit responsible for supervising casinos and racetracks.
The KSA has also concluded an agreement with Spelinspektionen of Sweden. The two regulators have agreed to cooperate on compliance proceedings against operators in either jurisdiction that violate their licence conditions or operate unlawfully.
The regulator is planning for next year’s launch in Holland of controlled igaming.
