MGA signs MOU with Dutch Gambling Authority. The Malta Gaming Authority (the MGA) and the Dutch Kansspelautoriteit (the Dutch Gambling Authority) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance the cooperation between the two authorities.
Thanks to this MoU, both authorities will assist each other in exchanging best practices and knowledge to assist their legal obligations, while at the same time participating in policy issues of concern discussions.
Both authorities will benefit from this MoU, as they share similar priorities of crime prevention, ensuring that gaming is fair and open, and also protecting people against gambling addiction.
The Kansspelautoriteit’s Chairman, René Jansen, stated that “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.”
The MGA’s Chief Executive Officer, Heathcliff Farrugia, expressed his satisfaction on this agreement whereby he stated that “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.”
