Senet Assure and Senet Assure Premium have been launched this week by a team of Australian experts in order to set a new global standard to protect gaming organisations and venues, their customers, and their communities against gambling-related harm and money laundering”.

The move comes after the NSW Crime Commission warned of greater financial crime in 2021, citing concerns that poker machines in particular would be exploited as a money-laundering option for criminals.

 
 

Senet regulatory and gambling specialist Paul Newson said that as well as safeguarding corporate reputation and minimising the risks of gambling harm and financial crime”, achieving accreditation via the program would “demonstrate an organisation’s commitment to responsible gambling culture.

“The certification will only be awarded to operators who can demonstrate the highest level of vigilance,” Mr Newson said, noting that his team has “unmatched regulatory and legal expertise across the gambling sector including in respect of anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regulation”.

“Our team has developed this accreditation based on our deep knowledge of the complexities and challenges in 2021 facing gambling operators committed to responsible gambling outcomes and staying a step ahead of criminal activity,” he added.

“The accreditation is a way for industry leaders to demonstrate they are meeting the highest standards of accountability and exceeding best practice in protecting their customers and their staff in cultivating a workplace culture of compliance and social responsibility.”
