Romania: first interim licenses are out, what's next?

17th November 2015

Romania has garnered much attention since the beginning of 2015 as it moves towards regulating its igaming market. The government's aim is to provide a modern and attractive regulatory framework, but many issues are yet to be resolved.

Among them, secondary legislation which would enable software suppliers, platform hosting services, payment processors as well as marketing affiliates to apply for second class licenses. And when that finishes, the full licensing process will have opened for the gambling operators as by then the interim right should have expired.

Ana-Maria Baciu and Cosmina Simion, co-heads of gaming practice at NNDKP, one of Romania's leading law firms, take us through the key points of the current legal framework and provide their insights to help navigate the market.
