Ahead of fast approaching deadlines, the dynamic and ambiguous state of the German regulatory environment was discussed by regulators and industry representatives on April 12 at Clarion Events' World Regulatory Briefing in Frankfurt.
The conference, which ran under the title “German roadmap to regulation — the first-ever, all-inclusive focus on 16 German states’ plans for igaming,” was attended by around 160 industry representatives.
With the European Commission’s answer to the Interstate Treaty revealed just a few weeks ago and such important deadlines approaching as the May 6 elections in Schleswig-Holstein and July 1, 2012 set for the ratification of the Interstate Treaty, the conference was perfectly timed among/before fast paced developments.
The questions everyone was asking were whether the Interstate Treaty will come into force or if it will still be stalled in state parliaments and whether Schleswig-Holstein will join the Interstate Treaty at the last minute.
