The Netherlands – Ksa and French authority sign cooperation agreementBy Phil - 26 October 2020
Dutch Gaming Authority Kansspelautoriteit (Ksa) and the French gambling market regulator, Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ), have signed a cooperation agreement.
Isabelle FALQUE-PIERROTIN, Chairwoman of the ANJ, and René JANSEN, Chairman of the Kansspelautoriteit (Netherlands), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 23 October 2020. The agreement between the ANJ and the Kansspelautoriteit pursues cooperation between regulatory authorities which share a common view on online gambling regulation. This corresponds with the current work on online gambling which is ongoing on a European level. This work, for example, includes promotion of cross border cooperation and adoption of common principles guaranteeing a high level of protection for consumers, players and minors.
The agreement, organised in respect of personal data protection rules, will enhance the efficiency of regulation carried out by both authorities in strategic regulatory areas such as the fight against money laundering and financing terrorism, the management of player accounts, the supervision of advertising and the protection of consumers and prevention of problem gambling.
