EU To Relaunch Gambling Infringement Proceedings
Nine Member States Targeted And 20 to Be Investigated
The European Commission has announced it will relaunch infringement proceeding against nine member states and investigate 20 others as part of a drive to ensure countries national gambling laws are compatible with EU law.
The European Gaming and Betting Association welcomed the news saying it ended four years of legal and regulatory limbo.
The European Commission said it would “take action to enforce the relevant Treaty provisions in respect of any national rules not complying with EU law” as well as asking member states with already open infringement proceedings or complaints against them to, “provide updated information that is needed to complete its assessment of compatibility with EU law”
Sigrid Ligné, Secretary General of EGBA said, “We are very pleased with the EC’s decision today to take formal action against non-compliant national gambling laws. We expect litigation at EU level to swiftly restore legal certainty for our sector in Europe.
“Unjustified restrictions and protectionist regimes have been hampering the sustainability of EU operators for far too long. This is a good day for the online gambling sector in the EU.”
