The Gambling Commission recently published its long-awaited Raising standards for consumers: Enforcement report 2017-2018. The report, which is the first of its kind, focused on the Commission’s enforcement work under the Gambling Act 2005 over the past year. The report “aims not just to review the past year but to also be an industry facing publication building on [the Commission’s] casework and bringing together…published lessons and guidance. It is intended to help ensure compliance and raise standards.” Licensees were warned that if they failed to adhere to Commission guidance (in the report and its public decision notices) they could expect enforcement action “more swiftly and with greater penalty”.
