The Netherlands.- The gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has opened a consultation on its policy rules for how licence holders must share information.

The consultation comes ahead of the upcoming launch of the Netherlands’ licensed igaming market on October 1.

The proposed policy rules oblige licensees to report any relevant changes in behaviour or events to KSA’s board of directors as soon as possible.

What constitutes a “relevant change” is fairly extensive, ranging from changes to primary licence holders to legal issues including criminal convictions, settlements or tax penalties and any changes to payment methods with players.

Licensees must also report changes involving the national self-exclusion system, Centraal Register Uitsluiting Kansspelen (CRUKS).

Operators can respond to the consultation or raise any queries via the KSA website until August 13, although the KSA has said that it will not reply to individual responses.

The KSA opened the licensing process for the Netherlands’ upcoming licensed igaming market in April and received 28 licence applications.

Last month, KSA chairman René Jansen was named chairman of the Gaming Regulators European Forum (GREF) with immediate effect.
