Consultation on the information requirements in the licence conditions and codes of practice (LCCP), regulatory returns, official statistics and related matters

Closed 20 May 2020

Opened 26 Feb 2020


Our data requirements change over time, reflecting developments in the gambling industry, government policy and our regulatory approach. 

This consultation sets out the Gambling Commission’s proposals to change the regulatory data that we require licensees to provide to us and offers an opportunity for stakeholders to comment on the proposed changes. 

The proposals seek to:

  • improve data quality and the efficiency of regulation
  • reflect our continued focus on consumers and social responsibility
  • ensure requirements are reconciled against our current and future data needs
  • streamline our existing requirements and, where possible, reduce regulatory burden.

Guiding these proposals is the principle that we only request data that supports our regulatory aims, at the appropriate time and by the most efficient means.
