These regulations were not, however, directed exclusively towards the gambling sector, but rather included gambling in the spectrum of other areas restricted due to the spread of the virus.
However, there are some exceptions. Perhaps most notable is that in December 2020 ONJN adopted Order No. 404/2020 which lays down the new technical verification requirements for the gambling machines (this regulatory act was published in the Official Gazette on January 6th, 2021). It is worth pointing out from the outset that the issuance of a new technical framework for the certification of gambling machines is a welcomed endeavour of the regulator, given that the previous regulation was drafted in the early 2000s and could no longer correspond to the technological realities existing in the market. It must also be said that the new technical rules could have been adopted even (much) sooner, but of course we are still operating on the principle better later than never.
