In 2010, the legislator gave the Regulatory Authority for Online Games (ARJEL) the status of an independent administrative authority. This status was necessary to prevent a double conflict of interest: on the one hand, the State is a shareholder of one of the operators, La Française des Jeux, and on the other, it must arbitrate between tax and public health issues.

With Article 137 of the Pacte Act on the privatization of La Française des Jeux and the Order of October 2, 2019, reforming the gambling regulation, the legislator broadened the scope of intervention of the new Gambling Authority (ANJ) by giving it the status of an independent administrative authority.

The ANJ reports to Parliament: it presents an annual activity report and its President may be heard by the competent committee of each of the two assemblies.

On 23 September (Wednesday) at 10 AM EDT | 4 PM CEST | 3 PM BST, Isabelle FALQUE-PIERROTIN (ANJ Chairwoman) will join Jaka Repanšek (Media and Gaming Expert, Partner at Hipther Agency) for an exciting talk about ANJ and its mission.
