The Netherlands: express your interest in a future license to offer online gambling!

By Richard van Schaik and Róbin de Wit

The Dutch Games of Chance Authority (“KSA”) calls online gambling operators to express their interest in a license to offer online gambling in the Netherlands. This can be done as of 1 December 2014, through an online registration form available on the website of the KSA (http://www.kansspelautoriteit.nl/). In this manner, the KSA is able to keep interested operators informed of the course of the developments with regard to the licensing procedure. Furthermore, the KSA will ask online gambling operators to provide input on the licensing requirements via a public consultation in the course of January 2015. Information on the application procedure will follow soon on KSA’s website.
