News Regulatory data collection consultation

  • Date: 16 November 2016
  • Author/Solicitor: Nick Arron

“The Gambling Commission have today released a consultation which details their proposals to change certain parts of the information that they require from licensed operators and gives an opportunity for stakeholders to comment on the proposed changes. The main focus of the consultation is on regulatory returns data, which all operators are required to complete and submit as a condition of their licence on an annual or quarterly basis.

The consultation provides details of the proposed changes to the data collected through the mechanism of regulatory returns, as well as the method of collection and invites views and comments on these issues. The changes are to be made through a staged process, with those changes which are more time critical being made during the first phase.

The closing date for responses to the consultation is Friday 13th January 2017 and the full consultation can be found at -  http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/Publications-consultations/Consultations/Open-consultations/Regulatory-data-collection-consultation.aspx
