UKGC asks licensees for responses on gambling regulation
As of late, the UKGC has launched a new consultation that will help them point out any changes to its approach. This consultation will run until the 12th of February and will work to make sure that the research being carried out is relevant and precise. They are looking for responses from licensees, consumer interest groups, charities and anyone with an interest in gambling regulation.
The UKGC is obliged to regulate gambling in the UK and they frequently update their regulations based on their findings. In the scheme that was set out, they seek to replace the online surveys and telephone calls with a single procedure.
A representative of the UKGC said: “We believe that a new approach will enable us to set the standard for authoritative research into gambling.”
Any operators, affiliates or organisations in the UK who are interested in gambling research or regulation are able to engage in the consultation to help make sure any new methodology suits everyone.
Recently, the UK government has been going over the gambling laws and the role of the UK Gambling Commission. Not long ago, they launched a review of the 2005 Gambling Act that looked at stake limits and the minimum age requirements for the National Lottery.
With more reviews seemingly on their way, affiliates and operators should keep tabs on any alterations in regulations. Anyone looking to improve the way that data is gathered, and changes are made should engage in the most recent consultation. It will run until 12 February.
