Monday January 20,2014 : EUROPEAN REGULATORY AUTHORITIES MEET
But apparently no further talk on shared liquidity
An informal meeting of French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and United Kingdom regulatory authorities held in Rome on 16 and 17 January 2014 covered a broad range of topics of which shared liquidity was reported to be surprisingly absent.
Topics included the improvement of information sharing, views on the regulatory evolution of domestic markets, control systems, the exchange of standardised market data, the role of game suppliers, technical standards, skill games, maintaining high standards of player protection, comparing market data and the legal issues linked to the exchange of personal data.
Italian regulatory authority Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli, which includes the newly incorporated AAMS, hosted the event affording attendees a visit to the premises and operations of the Italian National IT company Sogei. Sogei developed and manages the central control system for Italian gambling activities.
The absence of further talks on European shared liquidity has surprised many as the issue was a hot topic at previous meetings .
The next European regulators meeting is scheduled to take place in Germany later this year.
