Two-year term strengthens collaboration between Netherlands and other European regulators.

Marja Appelman, head of the Dutch gaming authority Kansspelautoriteit, has been elected for a two-year term to the board of the Gaming Regulators European Forum (GREF).

Appelman’s nomination, supported by both British and Danish regulators, allows the Kansspelautoriteit to strengthen trans-national cooperation, leading to “more effective monitoring of safe and reliable game offers in the Netherlands”, the authority said.
