The Spelinspektionen, Sweden’s gambling regulator, has just signed a Memorandum of Understanding or MoU with the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), Netherland’s gambling regulator. This partnership aims to improve cooperation between the two gambling authorities.
Under the MoU, the two regulators will collaborate by sharing information and working together to carry out actions against operators that violate licensed conditions, or illegally operate in either jurisdiction.
The Spelinspektionen and the KSA will also work together on strategies that focus on preventing crime and making sure gambling is carried out in a fair and transparent manner. The two regulators also aim to protect vulnerable people from gambling-related harm.
“This is the fourth MoU we have signed with European gambling authorities since the new Swedish regulation came into force in 2019,” Camilla Rosenberg, Spelinspektionen director general, said.
“By opening the communication channels between the authorities, we become stonger in our supervisory activities,” he added.
René Jansen, KSA Chairman, also welcomed the MoU, explaining that formalizing its relationship with Spelinspektionen will allow for better cooperation between them.
The new agreement follows the KSA signing a similar MoU with the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) back in August. Under this MoU, the two regulators will work together to put an end to illegal gambling activities within their respective gambling markets.
The Spelinspektionen also signed an MoU with the GB Gambling Commission in November last year.
