MGA and Alderney’s regulator renew Memorandum of Understanding

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) have renewed their Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Initially entered into back in 2013, the MoU serves to solidify the collaborative efforts between the two regulators.

According to a press release, this renewed MoU “further emphasizes the MGA and the AGCC’s commitment to enhancing cooperation, enabling them to perform their respective functions more effectively.”

Carl Brincat, MGA CEO, said: “The renewal of the MoU with the AGCC continues to reaffirm our shared commitment towards supervising a safe and responsible gaming ecosystem across the board.”

Andrew Gellatly, Executive Director of the AGCC, added: “With this MOU, we look forward to continuing and strengthening our valued collaboration with the MGA, to the benefit of both players and stakeholders.”

Both regulators share common objectives and values in regulating the gaming sector, including the prevention of crime, consumer protection, and the protection of vulnerable persons against gambling addiction. The MGA and the AGCC also recognize the strong need for international regulatory cooperation given the cross-border nature of the gaming industry.

Established in the year 2000, the AGCC is Alderney’s gaming regulatory body and is responsible for the supervision of gaming businesses, including licensing and the enforcement of regulations.
