NEW SURVEY GIVES EUROPEAN COMMISSION A BETTER VIEW OF EUROPE'S ONLINE GAMBLING REGULATIONS
Quinel and Avviza deliver their matrix of national online gambling regulations.
Regulatory certification and consulting firms Quinel and Avviza have concluded their extensive survey of European national online gambling technical regulatory requirements following a six month project to assemble an easy to reference matrix, commissioned last year by the European Commission's Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs directorate.
The companies delivered their conclusions, which include both EU and European Economic Area technical regulations, this week.
The detailed document will enable member states or organizations within those states to have at their fingertips a comprehensive and dynamic (regularly updated) picture of the technical requirements of every EU and EEA member state's technical regulations regarding online gambling.
Former Malta chief regulator and now Avviza Advisory founder and consultant, Reuben Portanier, said in a statement: “Carrying out a study of such a wide ranging magnitude in terms of technical requirements mandated across national legalizations, regulations, directives and technical guidelines was no easy task, however our joint Quinel/Avviza team worked relentlessly, and managed to produce a dynamic matrix study which is a first of its kind in this sector.”
Quinel chairman, Isacco Ceci, added: “This prestigious study was presented in Brussels last December to the EU Commission and to the national regulatory bodies within the EEA, and it is with great pride and satisfaction that Quinel could share its expertise and experience in the field of technical requirements with the EU Commission and 31 Regulators across the EEA”,
