LGA and AGCC agreed a MoU
Malta’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a bilateral cooperation.
The authorities said the MoU will provide a formal basis and framework for cooperation between the two jurisdictions.
This will include the exchange of information and investigative assistance of providers, and remote gambling services.
The MoU will also address issues including reciprocal server location, cloud regulation, the recognition of national certification bodies and player liquidity.
The MoU was signed by Mario Galea, LGA’s chairman, and André Wilsenach, chief executive officer of the AGCC.
“With this MoU the two jurisdictions recognise the common values underlying their regulation of remote gaming namely to ensure consumer protection and the protection of society and public order, amongst others, and to regulate in such a way as to ensure fair, responsible and secure provision of gaming services, implemented through robust and comprehensive systems, mechanisms and monitoring,” Galea said.
Wilsenach added: “The MOU is an important step in the development and sharing of common regulatory best practices, including employee exchange programmes, common certification standards and other practical and operative arrangements to reflect technological and other developments in the area, which should benefit operators in both jurisdictions as it will endeavour to reduce the amount of duplication and costs of doing business in the two jurisdictions.”
