The Danish Gaming Authority has issued the below guidance to operators in line with the UK exiting the European Union (EU) next month.
Great Britain’s exit from the EU
From 1 January 2021, the Brexit transition period ends.
Licence holders that are established in Great Britain after the end of the transition period are responsible for complying with the requirement of a representative in connection with their Danish licence if their circumstances change with Brexit.
Representative required for licence holders established or residing outside an EU or EEA-country
Persons who do not reside in Denmark or another EU or EEA-country and businesses that are not established in Denmark or another EU or EEA-country can only obtain a licence to offer and arrange gambling activities if they have appointed a representative.
If the licence holder does not reside in (persons) or is not established (businesses) in Denmark or another EU or EEA-country, the licence holder is, throughout the entire period of authorisation, responsible for having submitted an Annex C, which must be approved by the Danish Gambling Authority.
In Annex C, a representative is appointed. The representative must reside in Denmark or, if the representative is a business, the business must be established in Denmark or another EU-country or EEA-country. The appointed representative must be approved by the Danish Gambling Authority.
