As the recently launched Dutch market continues to gather pace three months after its regulation, Maxima Compliance has established a dedicated office within the Netherlands. 

The company hopes that the opening of the office, part of a joint venture with business consulting firm Gran Via BV, will “better serve customers” in the Netherlands’ online gaming sector. 

“It’s become clear in the short few months since regulated online gaming launched in the Netherlands that only those with a strong handle on compliance requirements will succeed in this exciting new market,” explained Antonio Zanghi, CEO of Maxima Compliance

“Maxima Compliance’s Dutch office means we can now provide bespoke and local expertise to operators and suppliers in the Netherlands.”

Sharing a similar view, Tom de Bruijn, co-founder of Gran Via BV, noted that since the launch of the country’s regulated online gaming framework last year, the market is “quickly developing into one of the most important in Europe”.

He continued: “Gaming businesses are learning that a deep understanding of local conditions and requirements, particularly when it comes to compliance, is essential. That’s why we are thrilled to be working alongside the best in the business, Maxima Compliance.”

Maxima Compliance insists that setting up a base within the Netherlands will result in the company being able to deliver its suite of technical and regulatory compliance services to Dutch-based gaming companies, with a local approach specific to the requirements of the country.

This includes management system review and support, change management support, technical and regulatory compliance support, and Maxima DataVault.

To further demonstrate its long-term commitment to the market, the company has also stated it will also partner with Gaming in Holland from 2022. 

Willem van Oort, founder of Gaming in Holland, concluded: “I am very happy to welcome Maxima Compliance to the Netherlands-focused igaming community. In order to operate successfully in the highly-regulated Dutch market, technical compliance is of paramount importance. This holds true not only for licensed operators, but also for related B2B service providers.”
