Statement of gambling principles review

We were consulting on a revised statement of principles to set out how we will carry out our duties as required under the Gambling Act 2005.

We have a duty under the Gambling Act (2005) to license premises where gambling takes place, and to licence certain other activities (such as registering small society lotteries).

As part of this duty it is a legal requirement for us to have a statement of principles that sets out how we will carry out the duties required under the Act.

We are required, by law, to review and publish a revised statement every 3 years. It was last updated in 2018 and came into effect from 31 January 2019.

The draft statement

We have now written a draft revised statement of gambling principles for 2022-25 and we wanted your comments on it.
