Dutch Authority Strengthens Sports Integrity Measures

In co-operative agreement with the International Olympic Committee

The Netherlands gambling authority, Kansspelautoriteit, has joined forces with the International Olympic Committee’s Integrity Betting Intelligence System (IBIS) to strengthen its anti-match fixing and sports integrity capabilities.

Access to the system will enable Kansspelautoriteit to share information on suspicious gambling, suspected match-fixing and illegal betting.

“With IBIS, the authority will be strengthened in combating match fixation. International cooperation is the key to an effective approach. We need to share information and gain knowledge,” vice chairman of Kansspelautoriteit, Henk Kesler, said.

“IBIS offers direct international contact with match fixing stakeholders and gives us the opportunity to access information that would otherwise remain hidden.”
