The KSA and Spelinspektionen have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in bid to reach mutual objectives, such as problem gambling, criminality and ensuring games are fair. 

Dutch regulator, the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), reported entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Swedish Gambling Authority (Spelinspektionen) in bid to ‘enhance cooperation between the two authorities’.

On the 19th October 2020, the Kansspelautoriteit announced the good news during a press release. They stated: 

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. 

In reference to the objectives both regulators aim to achieve through the Memorandum, the KSA noted: 

“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”. 

Spelinspektionen´s Director General, Camilla Rosenberg, shared her excitement stating that:  

camillaBy 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.

Chairman of the KSA, René Jansen, has mentioned in the past that agreements with international regulators are captured and legitimised in Memorandums of Understanding as it solidifies cooperation and sets an example for the gambling and gaming industries.
