Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and Sportradar launched a new initiative to tackle fixing and manipulation in motorsport events.

The RaceAgainstManipulation campaign will target drivers competing in both national and international competitions as well as team personnel, officials, volunteers, event organisers and FIA staff and consultants.

Jean Todt, President of FIA, said: “Safeguarding the integrity of motor sport worldwide is of paramount importance. No reports of betting manipulation in motor sport have been received to date but we must be vigilant.

“And the best way to achieve this is through education. RaceAgainstManipulation will help stakeholders to recognise potential threats, assist them in the reporting of misconduct. It is an essential tool in the fight to maintain sporting integrity and I advise everyone involved in our sport to use it.”

Additionally, the FIA also aims to reach out to the wider motorsport community outside of the FIA, including national sporting organisations, staff and consultants, media and fans of the sport.

The partners’ efforts include the launch of an e-learning platform, consisting of a 30-minute tutorial, first provided to Formula One drivers on Friday 27 August at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.

Content covered by the tutorial includes the identification of the behaviour of competition fixtures and information concerning obligations and the duty to report, as well as details regarding the consequences which can arise as a result of regulations breaches. Upon completing the tutorial, each participant receives an FIA certificate.

FIA Secretary-General for Sport Peter Bayer said: “This user-friendly platform is a milestone for the FIA and the motor sports world as it will help raise awareness of the specific contents of the International Sporting Code on this topic and in particular what competition manipulation means in an informative and entertaining approach.

“I thank Pierre Ketterer, Head of the FIA Governance, Integrity & Regulatory Affairs Department and the FIA team for their proactive process to this important matter.”

Andreas Krannich, Managing Director Integrity Services at Sportradar, said: “Manipulation and fixing is a serious threat to sport worldwide and it’s important that all those actively participating in competitive sports competitions, be they competitors, officials or other stakeholders, have the necessary tools to identify risks and how to go about reporting them through the appropriate channels.

“RaceAgainstManipulation is a great initiative with a clear purpose and we commend the FIA for the steps they’re taking to educate their drivers and other stakeholders, and maintain the integrity of their sport.”

Bulgarian President Approves Gambling Law Amendments

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Bulgarian President Rumen Radev has decided not to veto the proposed amendments to the Gambling Law, which include a prohibition on gambling advertisements in the media.

Previously, President Radev had indicated that he was deliberating on the changes to the Gambling Law and was awaiting input from his advisors before making a final decision.

The prohibition on gambling advertisements in the media was approved by a significant majority of deputies during the final session of the 49th National Assembly. Despite objections raised by various media outlets, gambling operators, sports clubs, and other businesses between the readings, the amendments were endorsed. Some stakeholders argued against the ban, suggesting that public discussion should precede its adoption.

The initiative for the amendments originated from GERB and DPS, and it was introduced unexpectedly during the last days of the 49th National Assembly by Yordan Tsonev (DPS) and Temenuzka Petkova (GERB). The bill swiftly progressed through the legislative process, passing its first reading in the budget committee and subsequently receiving approval in the plenary session. An extraordinary meeting of the Committee on Budget and Finance was convened to facilitate the voting on the amendments before the deputies commenced their pre-election recess.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Playson, the fast-growing digital entertainment supplier, has been granted an ISO/IEC 27001:2022 certificate, reinforcing its commitment to implementing robust compliance measures.

Having previously gained an ISO 27001:2013 certificate three years ago, this updated version is key in safeguarding sensitive information and required for Playson to hold its existing licences in valuable regulated markets.

This latest development coincides with Playson’s plans to further extend its outreach across a number of regions over the next 12 months, paving the way for the supplier to enter new jurisdictions in a more streamlined way.

The accreditation was awarded by Quinel and recognises the provider’s adherence in aligning with the standards that the International Organisation for Standardisation sets, demonstrating its ability to mitigate any information security risks whilst meeting all necessary legal and regulatory requirements.

The 2022 version includes updates and revisions to better address contemporary information security risks and challenges, such as those related to cloud computing, remote working, and emerging technologies. It provides organisations with a framework for implementing and managing an effective information security management system (ISMS) to protect their sensitive information assets.

Vsevolod Lapin, Deputy CEO at Playson, said: “The transition to ISO 2022 is welcome news for the business, and shows our continued dedication to compliance and regulation. Partners can rest assured of Playson’s heightened security measures and adherence to international standards with us acquiring this certificate.

“Greece, Ontario and Sweden are vital territories for Playson, with this certification also necessary for the Swiss market, and I expect the ISO 2022 to be required for more jurisdictions in the future, so this recognition has been received at a good time as we look to strengthen our global standing.”
