CEGs Portal to file a License Verification Request ("LVC") is now active

A License Verification Certificate ("LVC") to verify the license of a CEG licensed brand to a third-party supplier can now be requested online via https://www.curacao-egaming.com/licenses-and-business/lvc-landing

Critical Suppliers of Business to Business ("B2B") Services to IP Operators that are sublicensed under Curaçao eGaming ("CEG") may order an LVC, certifying that a specific brand (or: "domain") has been properly licensed by CEG.

What does the LVC cost?

The IP Operator is charged € 35 per certification process. The charge is added to the monthly invoice of the IP Operator. The IP Operator will also be charged if the LVC is denied due to a breach of compliance (for example, not properly showing the CEG "heartbeat" seal).

When will the LVC be delivered and to whom?

Depending on the license package type of the IP Operator, as well as the information provided, the said certificate is produced within 3-5 working days. The LVC will be sent to the Critical B2B Supplier and/or to the Corporate Service Provider ("CSP") of the IP Operator.

Requirements and Limitations

CEG verifies with the CSP of the IP Operator if the said order has been approved.

The applicant needs to provide proof of the B2B relationship to CEG by uploading a copy of a valid agreement between parties.

CEG Legal Department will verify whether or not the agreement provided is valid. CEG Tech Department will verify whether or not the CEG "heartbeat" Verification Seal is properly displayed.

The LVC only certifies that a brand has been properly licensed at the time of review, on a specific date. It does not certify whether or not the brand is fully compliant with CEG Compliance Standards, only whether or not the brand is under license.

No LVC can be issued if the brand does not properly show the "heartbeat" CEG Verification Seal with a green stamp holding the actual (local Curaçao) time and date. Prior to submitting the application, the applicant is advised to verify whether or not this is the case as the IP Operator will still be charged if the application is denied due to a compliance issue. Critical B2B Suppliers should always verify if a properly formatted Public Certificate is produced after clicking the CEG Verification Seal on the brand page. Visiting, for example, a brand (domain) via an Alternate Designation ("AD" or "Alias") that has not been authorized by CEG, will produce the result "UNLICENSED".

What information does the LVC display?

The LVC holds the name of the IP Operator that is operating the brand. Below the name of the IP Operator the Sublicense Designated Reference ("SDR") is displayed, formatted as follows: B2C-1234ABCD-1668JAZ. Below the SDR, the brand name is displayed. Below the brand name the reference number of the local Curaçao Chamber of Commerce is displayed, followed by the name of the applicant as well as the review date. The LVC is signed by the CEO of CEG.
