MEETING REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS MALTA – AML, RG AND BLOCKCHAIN DEVELOPMENTS
The updated gambling regulatory framework in Malta came into force as of August 1st 2018. The changes, which have now had almost a year to settle in were, designed to enhance responsible gambling measures and consumer protection standards and implement an overall risk based approach to regulatory processes and procedures.
Maltese authorities have, in the past, been accused of failing to tackle serious AML breaches however the Malta Gaming Authority has demonstrated its dedication to changing this perception. It is very clear that businesses must now ensure best practice is observed.
In addition, Malta and the many gaming businesses who call the island home provide a hotbed of innovation when it comes to technological development. The MGA has stated that their strategy is to be at the forefront of gaming regulation while embracing innovation. This is demonstrated by their commitment to the Virtual Finance Assets (VFA) and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) sandbox framework.
This event is a must for any gaming business or support service provider based in or looking to do business in Malta. We will take a deep dive into the regulatory framework, best practice and the opportunities to benefit from innovation from a player protection perspective.
This exclusive conference and training event will deliver key learning outcomes and across the two days you can expect:
- A greater understanding of AML, Blockchain and Payments
- How to identify suspicious activity
