The Belgium Gaming Commission has reached an agreement with France’s Autorité Nationale des Jeux to collaborate on gambling regulation in their respective countries, including safer gambling measures.

Coming together at the recent Gambling Regulators’ European Forum conference, ANJ Chair Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin and GC Chair Magali Clavie signed a cooperation and information exchange agreement.

According to a statement on the GC’s website, through the collaboration, the two regulators will cooperate “on a strategic level” to help each jurisdiction “optimise player protection” and produce “a safe gambling environment”.

Together, the ANJ and GC will also “exchange information, carry out joint investigations and studies and publish joint reports”.

At the conference, Falque-Pierrotin was also elected as the new Chair of GREF, a role she will serve for a two-year term.

Anders Dorph, President of Denmark’s Spillemyndigheden, will serve as Vice Chairman, Tim Miller, Regulatory Director of the UK Gambling Commission, will serve as Treasurer, and Sarah Kelly from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission will serve as Secretary.

In addition, Clavie, Atle Hamar from Norway’s Lottstift, and Kinga Warda from the Malta Gaming Authority also join the GREF board as members.
