Regulators Agree To Agree

Malta’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority has concluded a memorandum of understanding with the Isle of Man’s Gambling Supervision Commission calling for cooperation on

responsible gaming and consumer protection, and other areas of mutual concern in the remote gambling space.

The document provides a framework for the exchange of information between the two jurisdictions and investigative assistance on providers and remote gambling services. It also addresses issues such as reciprocal server location, cloud regulation, the recognition of national certification bodies and player liquidity.

Both jurisdictions said they will work to develop common regulatory best practices, which could involve the implementation of common certification standards and other technical measures and the launch of employee exchange programs.

The MoU was signed by Reuben Portanier, chief executive of the Lotteries and Gaming Authority, and GSC Chief Executive Steve Brennan.

The agreement is the seventh the LGA has concluded with regulators in the last six months in Denmark, Ontario and the Channel Island of Jersey and with FIFA, the European Sports Security Association and the International Olympic Committee.
