ANJ and CJH sign collaboration agreement

The gambling regulators of France and Belgium have recently announced a partnership that aims to expand both authorities’ reach.

Through the new agreement, both regulators will be able to share various information with each other to combine their efforts on regulatory investigations. This partnership will chiefly focus on the areas of AML, CTF, consumer protection, gambling advertising, and fraud, allowing the two regulators to work together to enhance their regulatory efforts. This collaboration will also involve staff exchanges to transfer valuable expertise between the two authorities.

The two regulators’ announcement detailed that any exchanged information should not contain any personal data and that each exchange should be initiated with a written request that states the intended purpose of the requested information. In some cases where the data may interfere with one of the sending authority’s ongoing cases or may present a risk to the sending country’s public order, the requested organization may refuse the exchange.

Furthermore, the announcement added that the CJH and ANJ should inform each other of any developments and changes in the gambling laws of their respective countries, for which dedicated meetings may be organized.

Back in March, the ANJ published a list of all blocked illegal operators in France, which the regulator has been expanding ever since it received the power to order ISPs to block certain unauthorized websites. Read more about this here.
