They are comprised by representatives of the CCAA and headed by the Minister of the Interior.
The first group, called Consumer Protection, would treta, among other issues: Data Protection, transparency, Ways of Payment and Charge, Advertising, Registration of Banned people and Responsible Gaming. The second group, called Gaming Management and Filing, would treat issues related to gaming models, registration of companies and control of security systems.
They are committed to set a schedule for the development of meetings, they will set an e-mail to communicate among the members of the groups and they will start working at the beginning of September. Each Autonomous Community could be indicated in each of the two groups or in both groups at the same time.
