IGSA and IAGR collaborate for effective & efficient gaming regulation

The International Gaming Standards Association and the International Association of Gaming Regulators have rolled-out a collaboration aimed at maximising opportunities for effective and efficient gaming regulation.

The initiative is to focus on two key priority areas during the coming 12 months, one of which involved the discussion and information exchange concerning known and emerging issues impacting regulatory policy and practice.

Furthermore, both parties also stress an aim of identifying opportunities to leverage standards and technology to advance efficient and effective gaming regulation.

Peter DeRaedt, IGSA president, said of the initiative: “IGSA is the single technology standards setting organisation in the gaming industry. We strongly believe that collective dialogue with regulatory authorities on an international level is crucial to enhance regulatory oversight while driving efficiencies for operators and suppliers. 

“Our collaboration with IAGR is an enormous step forward towards the betterment of the gaming industry as a whole. Our organisation is very excited about the opportunities this new collaboration presents.”

Both organisations assert that they “look forward to the outcomes of this collaboration over the next 12 months,” as well as building upon the scheme moving forwards.

Mabutho Zwane, IAGR president, added, “As regulators, we recognise that dialogue with industry is fundamental to both understand the sector and make informed decisions which can advance efficient and effective gambling regulation.

“This is particularly important at this time where there is opportunity to leverage technology to drive innovation in regulatory practice.”
