The UKGC and Spelinspektionen have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to help build cooperation between the regulatory bodies.
The MoU supports closer communication through the sharing of best practice on areas including regulatory policies and procedures. The agreement came into force on November 11th.
Camilla Rosenberg, director general of Spelinspektionen, commented: “This is an important agreement for us. We have common interest in many areas. By opening the communication channels between the authorities we become stronger in our supervisory activities. This is the beginning of a broad and long-term cooperation. Earlier this year we have entered a MoU with Malta Gaming Authority and Gibraltar Gambling Division.”
Neil McArthur, CEO of the UKGC, added: “We have excellent relations with other gambling regulators from across the world and our new link up with the Swedish Gambling Authority will give more opportunities to share good practice on a whole host of regulatory issues, cooperate closely and take shared action where appropriate. We look forward to working with colleagues in Sweden over the coming months and years.”
