Consultation description

In April 2009 the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Gambling Commission, undertook an exercise to look in detail at aspects of the system of remote gambling regulation in Britain, including the existing regulatory controls that applied to operators licensed overseas as well as mechanisms to secure fair contributions from all towards research, education and treatment for problem gambling in the UK and the Horserace Betting Levy.

Following that exercise, on 7 January 2010, a public consultation was launched on the feasibility of extending the existing licensing system for remote gambling to overseas-based operators that offer services to or advertise in the UK.

You can view responses on the Department for Culture, Media and Sports archived website.

This consultation document sets out the Department’s key findings and seeks your views on our proposals for change to address the concerns we have identified. A separate, consultation stage, Impact Assessment has also been prepared.
