Kahnawà:ke and Jersey Regulators Sign Mutual Cooperation Agreement

01 September 2015—The Kahnawà:ke Gaming Commission (the “KGC”) and the Jersey Gambling Commission (the “JGC”) are pleased to announce that in light of the growing globalisation of gambling services, they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MOU”) to provide a formal basis for cooperation and coordination between the two regulators. 

The MOU will include arrangements for the acquisition, exchange, handling, protection and use of information and, where appropriate, operational co-operation between the KGC and the JGC with respect to the activities of companies or persons engaged in the provision or use of gambling facilities of relevance to either regulator. 

“This is a welcome development – it’s increasingly important for gambling regulators to work together, not just to share best practice, but in a practical sense. Formalising this relationship demonstrates our recognition of the international nature of the online gaming industry, and our commitment to being a responsible member of the global gaming regulatory network”, said Dr Jason Lane, Chief Executive of the JGC. 

“We are convinced that it benefits both players and the online gaming industry to enhance the level of cooperation between and among online gaming regulators and to this end, we are very pleased to have formalized a relationship of mutual cooperation with the Jersey Gambling Commission”, added Mark Jocks, Chairperson of the KGC. 

The MOU is effective immediately and will continue in force unless and until terminated by either party.
