Both regulators look forward to building on the provisions within the agreement to explore and improve the consumer protection opportunities that cooperation offers, to streamline processes and to create efficiencies for business, says Steve Brennan, chief executive of the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission.
“The agreement builds on the Isle of Man’s commitment to international cooperation and provides a strong endorsement of the excellent reputation and international standing that the Island has earned through more than a decade of sound regulation of gambling activity, he added.”
