Netherlands gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has laid out the terms for operators to obtain an online betting license under the Remote Gambling Act, making the conditions available on their website.
Potential licensees will have to complete a form on the KSA website and provide marketing policies, addiction prevention policies, anti-money laundering policies, due diligence policies, and payment policies. These will all have to show how the operator plans to be compliant with Dutch law. After submission, the application will be reviewed by the KSA Management Board, where nonpayment of fines or taxes will be an important factor for operators.
The Netherlands will see remote gambling come into effect on March 1st of next year, with online casinos sanctioned to begin taking bets on September 1st. The industry was slated to launch earlier this year, but Covid put the brakes on the launch.
