Dutch licence holders have been warned that they must ensure all efforts to maintain ‘safe play and safe environments’ for consumers in 2023.
The warning was delivered as the headline message of the Kansspelautoriteit’s (KSA), the Dutch Gambling Authority, ‘2023 Supervisory Agenda’.
As regulatory supervisor, the KSA maintains the three principal objectives of its ‘2020-2024 Strategy’ to ‘protect and inform customers’, ‘prevent gambling addiction’ and ‘combat illegal gambling and criminal activities’. Statutory tasks remain unchanged as KSA is charged under the KOA Act as the Dutch gambling market’s licensing body, enforcement officer and monitor of standards and conduct.
Further duties related to preventing gambling addiction, see KSA manage CRUKS – the Central Registry System for Self-Exclusion.
