The Netherlands' gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has set forth the standards for license inspections for the Remote Gambling Act, which will allow for online gambling within the country.
The rules will demand auditors will have to meet certain standards, including being accredited to inspect online casino games for at least two EU member states. Inspectors must also be a member of either the International Accreditation Forum or International Laboratory Accreditation Forum. Inspectors are also going to be required to ensure that casinos are connected to the Cruks self-exclusion system, which will help keep problem gamblers from accessing casinos.
Auditors will be required to inspect design, implementation, and operation of each site.
The Netherlands largely based their inspection rules based on what is active in Denmark, which has an active online betting market.
The RGA will go into effect on March 1st, 2021, wherein the inspections will be able to start. Gaming licenses will then be doled out, and casino gambling will go live later in the year.
