Cooperation agreement with the Gambling Commission

On May 2016 Teresa Monteiro, Vice-Chair of SRIJ - Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos of Instituto do Turismo de Portugal, and S. Harrison, Chief Executive of Gambling Commission, signed a bilateral cooperation and information exchange agreement.

The signatory authorities aim at the implementation of appropriate procedures intending to strengthen their controls, improve regulation in the field of online gambling and fight illegal gambling.

The agreement sets out a mutual collaboration plan intended to drive efforts to safeguard that online gambling is conducted in a fair and open way, to avoid excessive and unregulated gambling, to prevent gambling from being a source of crime and disorder, as well as to protect vulnerable people from addiction or exploitation.

This bilateral cooperation agreement will strengthen and complement the general framework of the cooperation agreement on online gambling services signed by the gambling regulatory authorities of EEA Member States, dated November 2015.
