Focusing on a Better Exchange of Knowledge Between all Member Authorities

FRANCE (November 24, 2023) — The Gambling Regulators European Forum (GREF) and the North America Gaming Regulators Association (NAGRA) yesterday announced a partnership aimed at strengthening ties between gambling regulators on both sides of the Atlantic.

The two organizations, which bring together around a hundred regulators in Europe and North America respectively, are committed to strengthening their collaboration by focusing on a better exchange of knowledge between all member authorities.

This new partnership will include:

  • The organization of joint meetings;

  • Invitations to participate in the annual conferences of each party;

  • The organization of joint seminars to discuss emerging regulatory risks.

Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin, president of GREF, commented on this announcement:

“  As global public opinion grows more concerned about the risks linked to the excessive supply of gambling, particularly with the expansion of markets and innovations, it becomes imperative to intensify exchanges between regulators globally. The challenges facing regulators GREF and NAGRA are similar, and I am confident that this collaboration will strengthen the protection of our consumers  .”

Ryan Winfield, Arizona Department of Gaming and NAGRA President said:

“  The partnership between GREF and NAGRA is essential in this constantly evolving sector.   The changing landscape and future of the gambling industry requires that we reach out to other industry organizations to stay informed, as we continue to tirelessly serve our communities. This commitment to collaboration and communication will benefit citizens around the world  ”

The North American Gaming Regulators Association (NAGRA) is comprised of federal, state, local, tribal, and provincial government agencies that are primarily responsible for regulating legalized gaming activities.

The Gambling Regulators European Forum (GREF) brings together gaming regulators from across Europe to exchange views on issues relating to games of chance, in particular on the regulation, supervision, control of operators or the gambling industry.
