The Malta Gaming Authority and Kansspelautoriteit, the Dutch Gambling Authority, have strengthened their cooperation by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.
As part of the MoU, both authorities will collaborate and assist each other in sharing best practises and information in support of their legal responsibilities, while also engaging in policy issues of interest discussions.
Expressing its satisfaction with the agreement, Heathcliff Farrugia, chief executive of the MGA, noted: “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.”
With the signing of the MoU, it has been stated that both authorities will benefit from common goals of crime prevention, ensuring that gaming is fair and transparent, and protecting vulnerable people from gambling addiction.
Rene Jansen, the Chairman of the Kansspelautoriteit, added: “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.”
