Welcome to 'Gambling News'

 

'Gambling News' aims to help businesses which will be affected by new the Gambling Legislation to prepare for the changes that are scheduled to come into force on 1st September 2007.

 

Progress so Far


The Gambling Act 2005 abolished the existing Gaming Board and replaced it with the Gambling Commission. The Gambling Commission, the new independent regulator for gambling in Britain, was formally launched on 1 October 2005.


The Gambling Commission has, under Section 25 of the Gambling Act 2005 published guidance on the manner in which local authorities are to exercise their functions under the Act on 1st May 2006.

 

Keeping you informed


We intend to include more detailed Information on transition dates, arrangements, fees and the application process and requirements contained in the approved Regulations and Order made under the Gambling Act 2005.

 

The Gambling Commission publish Bulletins on the implementation of the Gambling Act, codes of practices and guidance.  To view this information visit the Gambling Commission website.

 

 If there is anything else that you feel we should include, or if you have any

questions you would like answered, please do not hesitate to contact us (details below).
