The Gaming Standards Association has created a new European division to meet demands of members outside North America.


[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Gaming Standards Association (GSA) has confirmed it will set up a new Malta-based division for its European members.

GSA Europe will see the worldwide standards-setting organization increase its focus on serving the regional needs of suppliers, manufacturers, online and land-based operators, and regulators outside North America.

Discussing the new division, GSA President Peter DeRaedt said: “GSA Europe underscores our recognition and commitment to growing European membership. The intent is to continue fostering an environment of collaboration between the European suppliers, operators and regulators while our mission remains to identify common issues and jointly develop solutions to the betterment of gaming globally. GSA is very excited to announce long time GSA board member and gaming veteran Mark Pace as GSA Europe’s Managing Director based in Malta to lead the effort in Europe. Our members now have the option to join GSA under US jurisdiction or European jurisdiction.”

GSA Europe Association formally launches at the upcoming ICE Totally Gaming tradeshow in London, and attendees are encouraged to visit GSA’s stand ND6-A for more information. While providing a much-needed European focus, GSA Europe offers members a number of significant benefits including:

European legal jurisdiction.

Commenting on his new position as GSA Europe’s MD, Mark Pace, said: “GSA has an extraordinary track record, and their work has influenced development, operations, and regulations in every corner of the gaming industry. Now, with the establishment of GSA Europe, we will be able to shine an even brighter spotlight on the developmental, operational, and regulatory needs of this richly diverse part of the industry.”

Membership levels and dues for GSA Europe will be identical to those of GSA (US) and European members will have input into GSA’s global strategy and direction.

To ensure continuity and achievement of its objectives, GSA, now comprised of GSA Asia, GSA Europe and GSA US, will continue to have a singular President and Board of Directors.
