Kansspelautoriteit (Ksa) och Spelinspektionen har ingått en överenskommelse (MoU, memorandum of understanding) i syfte att underlätta det pågående informationsutbytet mellan de två myndigheterna och därmed effektivisera tillsynen.

Spelinspektionen har tidigare tecknat motsvarande samarbetsavtal med Malta Gambling Commission, Gibraltar Gambling Division och UK Gambling Commission sedan den nya spelregleringen trädde i kraft 2019.

Överenskommelsen mellan Spelinspektionen och Ksa träder i kraft den 19 oktober 2020.

De två spelmyndigheterna har skickat ut ett gemensamt pressmeddelande.

The Swedish and the Dutch Gambling Authorities signs MoU

The Swedish Gambling Authority (Spelinspektionen) and the Netherlands Kansspelautoriteit have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the 19th of October, 2020. The purpose of the MoU is to enhance cooperation between the two authorities.  By signing the MoU both authorities agree to support each other even more frequently in for example the sharing of information, the sharing of lessons learned, and in case necessary joining hands together in enforcement actions against operators. Both authorities share the same common objectives of preventing criminality, making sure gaming is fair and transparent, and also protecting vulnerable persons against gambling addiction.

The Kansspelautoriteit’s Chairman, René Jansen, has stated before that he is delighted that agreements with international regulators are formalized and captured in Memorandums of Understanding. On the one hand because of the solid basis they provide for cooperation and on the other hand because of the clear signal that will be given towards the gambling and gaming industry.

Spelinspektionen´s Director General, Camilla Rosenberg, also expressed her satisfaction on this agreement whereby she stated that: “By opening the communication channels between the authorities we become stronger in our supervisory activities. This is the fourth MoU we sign with European gambling authorities since the new Swedish regulation came into force in 2019.”
