GSA Europe MD elected co-lead of CEN’s TC456 committee


SA Europe’s Managing Director Mark Pace has been elected by the


Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN) to lead the creation of a European Union online gaming reporting standard. CEN has established Technical Committee 456 to create this standard in support of online gambling supervision. GSA Europe joined Technical Committee 456 as a Liaison Organization in 2017. The Technical Committee’s mandate from the European Commission is directly aligned with work that GSA Europe has already started – namely, to


create a single standard set of data elements and single standard way in which data is provided by online gambling providers to EU Member State regulatory authorities.
