Following the Gambling Commission’s consultation completed back in May 2023, the Gambling Commission has announced three upcoming changes to the Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice (LCCP).
From the 1st April 2024 remote operators that provide remote betting facilities via the acceptance of bets placed over the telephone or email will be required to implement the multi-operator self-exclusion scheme (GAMSTOP). The amendment is contained within Social responsibility Code Provision 3.5.5 and relevant licensees should start to implement the GAMSTOP scheme into their regulatory safeguards for integration in April..
The Gambling Commission has also amended licence condition 15.2.2 regarding other reportable events, which requires all gambling businesses to notify the Gambling Commission when they become aware that a person who has gambled with them has died by suicide. This change will also come into force from 1st April 2024.
A minor amendment has also been made to the text of licence condition 5.1.2 regarding the legal framework governing the use of payment service providers and this change will come into effect on the 31st January 2024.
Full details of the changes can be found here.
Licensees may also wish to sign up to the Gambling Commission’s e-bulletin to assist with tracking any future changes.
