A Recognition Notice is a certificate issued by the Authority whereby an authorisation issued by another Member State of the EU or the EEA, or a State which is deemed by the Authority to offer safeguards largely equivalent to those offered by Maltese law, is recognised as having the same effect as an authorisation issued by the Authority for the purpose of providing a gaming service or gaming supply in or from Malta.
Applicants may submit an electronic request through the Licensee Portal. Please refer to the guidance notes for further details regarding the requirements to apply for a Recognition Notice.
Issued Recognition Notice Certificates are valid for one year and require annual maintenance reviews. The Authority may revoke any such recognition notice, and the recognition notice applicant shall be subject to administrative fees as per the fees schedule.
