EGBA has informed in its news about the gambling legislation that it welcomes the proposal to create the EU Gambling Expert Group.
The group will be headed by the European Commission and will become a platform for the industry representatives to communicate, share experience and the best practices, and set a common approach to the market regulation.
The absence of the EU Expert Group means a lack of cooperation
According to the EGBA representatives, the reestablishment of the Expert Group will help to plug the cooperation hole. The creation of the platform will allow its members to join forces to maintain an appropriate level of the €100-billion market. The current absence of communication became one of the obstacles for European regulators to follow a common principle compliant with the EU law.
The call was addressed to the European Commissioner from fourteen countries included in the EU. The former group consisted of representatives of gambling regulatory bodies, which facilitated better cooperation between several jurisdictions. However, it was dissolved by the European Commission in 2018. Now gambling authorities see a considerable necessity in a reestablishment as it will create a single regulatory framework necessary for coordinated industry operation.
