British gambling regulation is changing – are you getting ready?


The British Gambling Commission has begun formal consultation on an array of issues. It is asking the industry for its help in shaping the regulatory regime of the future.

In this briefing, we provide a detailed overview of the consultation, particularly focusing on the impact on remote gambling operators and suppliers.

As Great Britain continues its slow progress towards a new gaming regulatory environment, we continue to receive questions from our clients and other stakeholders within the industry asking how best to prepare for the new regime. Clients want to know how they can share with the UK Gambling Commission (the "Commission") the lessons learned during licensing procedures in other jurisdictions.

We hope for a regime that is balanced and workable, whilst always operating in observance of the stated licensing objectives of the Gambling Act 2005 (the "Act"). It is important to remember these objectives, as they form the basis of many of the Commission's policy positions.
