The NOGA and BOS have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together.
The Netherlands and Sweden.- The national gaming regulators of Holland and Sweden recently signed an agreement to collaborate. Now the country’s igaming industry associations have followed suit.
The Netherlands Online Gambling Association (NOGA) and Sweden’s Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly promote licensed brands and responsible gambling in each market.
The two bodies will share information and best practice with the aim of promoting sustainable, secure online gambling markets in both countries.
OS secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt said: “We both stand for a high level of customer protection in every aspect of gambling and also share a strong belief in the EU idea and therefore support free trade on equal terms.
“Protectionism and monopolism is not the way forward for the gambling industry; licensing systems are.”
NOGA managing director Peter-Paul de Goeij said: “Sweden has already led the Netherlands in the regulation of the online gambling market in the past two years.
“We can learn a lot from the experiences that BOS has gained during this period.
“The contact with BOS and other European sister organisations was already good and constructive, but with this formalisation, we hope to further boost European cooperation between sector organisations.”
