Australia.- Senet, an Australian advisory group on gambling law, regulation and compliance, has launched a new compliance accreditation designed to safeguard against gambling-related harm and money laundering.

The Senet Assure and Senet Assure Premium accreditations aim to allow industry leaders to show they are meeting standards of accountability and customer protection and cultivating a workplace culture of compliance and social responsibility.

Senet regulatory and gambling specialist Paul Newson said the certification will be awarded only to “operators who can demonstrate the highest level of vigilance.”

The new certification has been launched in the week that Crown Resorts was deemed unsuitable to hold a casino license for its new Sydney casino following an inquiry by the New South Wales regulator, the ILGA.

However, Philip Crawford, head of the ILGA, has said the operator may be able to open its Barangaroo casino by May if it makes swift changes.
