In a demonstration of its dedication to the Dutch market, ComplianceOne Group has joined forces with the Netherlands Online Gambling Association (NOGA). This partnership solidifies the compliance provider's association with NOGA.
Playing a crucial role in the Netherlands, NOGA serves as the voice for the online gambling industry. By uniting regulated operators, suppliers, and various stakeholders, NOGA actively works towards establishing an appealing and secure market within the country. Prominent members of NOGA include industry leaders such as Flutter, Entain, Kindred Group, and bet365.
In January 2022, Compliance One Group established a specialized office in the Netherlands, solidifying its presence in the country. Since then, it has rapidly emerged as the preferred compliance supplier for operators and providers aiming to venture into the Dutch market. Notably, in a significant partnership last year, Compliance One Group's subsidiary, Diligence in Gaming, collaborated extensively with operator Smart Gaming to successfully launch their betnation.nl brand, providing comprehensive regulatory and operational compliance expertise.
Mike de Graaff, the Head of Regulatory Services & Assurance at Diligence in Gaming, a subsidiary of ComplianceOne Group, stated: “Joining the Netherlands Online Gambling Association is an important milestone for ComplianceOne Group as we look to further support our partners in the Netherlands. With the Dutch regulatory landscape continuing to evolve, membership of NOGA helps us better serve the operators and suppliers finding exciting new opportunities in the market.”
Peter-Paul de Goeij, Managing Director at NOGA, also added: “Building a thriving, safe and sustainable Dutch online gambling market requires world-class compliance know-how, so I’m thrilled to welcome ComplianceOne Group to NOGA. The Group’s expertise across both regulatory and technical compliance will be an important asset for our members.”
In a recent development, earlier this year, de Graaff expressed concern regarding the obstacles that operators may encounter in response to the Dutch Gaming Authority's updated investigation regarding the duty of care that operators are expected to extend towards players. “Having worked with many licensed operators in the Netherlands since the framework went live in October 2021, the message I most often repeat is a simple one: treating regulation as a box ticking exercise won’t cut it,” he said during that time.
ComplianceOne Group stands as the foremost group of compliance providers in the iGaming industry, comprising renowned and esteemed brands such as Maxima Compliance, Complitech, DataVault ONE, Diligence in Gaming, and RecruitCompliance.
As a collective group, ComplianceOne Group leverages the strengths and expertise of its brands to provide comprehensive and integrated compliance solutions. Their commitment to regulatory compliance, player protection, and responsible gambling contributes to a safer and more transparent iGaming industry.
Serving as the official trade association and representative body, the Netherlands Online Gambling Association (NOGA) advocates for the establishment of a secure, responsible, and appealing online gambling environment within the Netherlands. NOGA unites online gambling providers who share the common goal of fostering a safe and enjoyable online gambling experience.
