Ukrainian Ministry of Justice is close to approving the list of gambling equipment for certification
One of the most important representatives of the Gambling and Lottery Regulation Commission of Ukraine (GRAIL) Boris Baum said that in the near future the Ministry of Justice will approve the list of equipment that is subject to certification by representatives of the gambling business. He told this on April 2 at a roundtable discussion about the current situation on the local gambling market.
During the speech Baum said: “There is a slight error in determining the timing. The reason for the delay is one – the approval of the list of gambling equipment for certification is delayed. But with the support of representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers Oleg Nemchinov and deputy finance committee Sergei Marchenko we still managed to move the approval of this issue. I am very grateful to these people for their understanding and help. Now the agreed list is already on the table of the Ministry of Justice. Perhaps it will be registered today or tomorrow.
The functionary also added that after all the legal nuances, the Gambling and Lotteries Regulatory Commission will publish on its official website the register of subjects of certification. Not only the specific operator, but also every interested party will be able to familiarize with it.
“I very much believe that already next week, around Wednesday, the regulator will start the process of accepting applications from licensed operators for certification of equipment. This procedure involves separate approvals,” the expert added.
Baum expressed the hope that at the beginning of May all the conditions set by the new gambling legislation for obtaining licenses will be accepted by the operators concerned, which will maximize the path for the full launch of the gambling business in Ukraine.
Earlier, Minister Oleg Nemchinov stated the desire to join the Ukrainian gambling market a number of large foreign companies, including industry leaders.
Recall that Ukraine has issued the first license for the organization of gaming halls.
