International Regulatory Co-Operation

The GSC is committed to progressing its principles of consumer protection and preservation of public order through co-operation with its international counterparts.

One of the ways we do this is to engage with international regulatory bodies like the Gambling Regulators European Forum (GREF) and the International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR).

This also allows us to keep abreast of international developments in the gambling market . We are visible and actively engaged in a wide range of issues in the international arena. 

IAGR is a global organisation for gambling regulators whose purpose is to promote the regulation of gambling through collaboration and sharing of knowledge. IAGR is comprised of 75 jurisdictions from all over the world.

The GSC's participation in IAGR contributes to efficiently spreading the knowledge of the GSC's work.










GREF is a forum for European gambling regulators that enables gambling regulators to meet and share knowledge and experience with each other. GREF’s objectives are:

  • to serve as a meeting place and exchanges of views between its Members on issues relating to gambling, in particular on regulation, supervision, control of operators, or on the gambling industry;
  • to represent the different views of European Gambling Regulators and also provide a central point of contact for enquiries directed at them from authorities or related organisations in Europe and elsewhere;
  • to encourage the study and research on issues and practices relating to the regulation of gambling and to share the results of such research among its Members; and
  • to share information and work relating to the regulation of gambling.       



Bilateral Agreements of Collaboration

From time to time the GSC may enter into formal agreements facilitating international cooperation, in order to progress these principles and the common objective of improving regulatory standards through the exchange of knowledge, the provision of assistance and the establishment of good working relationships.
