KSA has set out the inspection regime that will accompany The Netherlands’ new regulatory framework for online gaming next year.

The Netherlands.- The national regulator KSA has outlined the inspections regime to accompany the launch of the country’s Remote Gambling Act from March 1.

Prospective licensees will have to undergo an inspection of their gaming systems by an independent auditor to receive a licence. Auditors must submit their reports to the KSA.

The KSA has now set out standards that must be met by auditors. They will need to be credited to inspect online games of chance for at least two European Union member states and have had reports accepted by the states in the last two years.

The auditors must also be full members of either the International Laboratory Accreditation Forum (ILAC) or the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

Many of the draft rules for the audits covering design, implementation and operation are based on the system in Denmark, KSA said. 

Inspectors must also check that operators correctly implement connection to the Cruks national self-exclusion scheme.

There will be not specific format for full audit reports, but KSA has produced a set format for summaries.

The KSA has extended the deadline for its consultation on player protection measures until the end of this week.
