Composed of representatives from the sports world, governments, international organisations and betting operators, the Working Group endorsed the following series of proposals and methods for their implementation:
Monitoring, Exchange of information and Intelligence
The Working Group also approved the formation of a monitoring unit, whose mandate will be to follow the progress of the implementation of these recommendations.
