Quality Mark Responsible Affiliates (QMRA): WHO IS QMRA?

Quality Mark Responsible Affiliates (QMRA) is an initiative that has been set up after a successful launch of a Quality Mark (Keurmerk Verantwoorde Affiliates, in short: ‘KVA’) for the Dutch iGaming market: kva.nl. A short summary of the developments regarding KVA:

The above was sufficient reason to set up a Quality Mark for the United Kingdom, with a similar construction. Why the choice for the United Kingdom? Many connections have already been made within the UK from KVA. QMRA was therefore a logical next step. Also, XY Legal Solutions (xyls.nl), the mother company of KVA and QMRA; has extensive knowledge regarding UK Online Gambling laws and regulations.

How does QMRA work?

First of all, it is good to point out that QMRA is not just a ‘sticker’ that is given because we like your casino affiliate website. Several legal consultants work within our organization who will look specifically at your website. The following steps are followed:
Step 1: The Affiliate submits the affiliate site(s), through the contact form below. We work according to the ‘per website principle’: the affiliate applies per website. This way we can be sure that we have looked at the site that has our Quality Mark on it.
Step 2: Affiliate will receive general information about the application procedure from us, and will pay an invoice of 1125 Euro, or 935 Pounds.
Step 3: Our Legal Team will conduct a thorough compliance check of the offered Affiliate site(s). An extensive report will be written, based upon UK Online Gambling legislation (which has been summarized in the QMRA Code).
Step 4: Most likely, the first report will contain feedback on compliance. We will send the report to the person responsible, and our legal team will assist wherever possible.
Step 5: The Affiliate will process the feedback, after which our legal team will set up another report during the second compliance check. If everything is in accordance with the QMRA code, the Affiliate will receive the second report (which can be shared with operators/partners), explaining in what way the Affiliate works compliant to the legislation. The Affiliate will also receive the QMRA Logo Pack, with permission to place the logo (with hyperlink to the QMRA website) on the Affiliate Website(s).
In some cases, a third compliance check/report is needed. The Affiliate will not be charged more than the original sum for this.
Step 6: The Affiliate can have the logo present on the Affiliate website(s) for a year. After this year, extension is possible. Our legal team will then conduct a full compliance check (with report), for which an invoice of 725 Euro (or 610 Pounds) will be sent. During the time the Affiliate is part of QMRA, random checks will be conducted by our legal team at any moment.
