    Default UKGC seeking opinions on proposed regulation changes

    The Gambling Commission is inviting businesses, stakeholders and members of the public to "voice their opinion" on proposed changes to regulations linked to marketing and advertising, unfair terms and complaints and disputes. It said the changes were proposed to "make clearer our requirements that operators are fair and open with consumers."

    The proposals are based on evidence of potential harm or unfair treatment to consumers, concerns about lack of compliance with consumer protection legislation, declining public trust in gambling, and concerns about the impact of gambling on children and young or vulnerable people.

    These proposals will support our three-year strategy, which sets out how we will work with our partners to deliver a gambling market that works for consumers. They represent only a part of the work we are taking forwards to help protect the interests of consumers.
    Earlier this month, the commission release a 34-page report titled, "Proposed changes to licence conditions and codes of practice linked to the fair and open licensing objective." You can read the report by clicking here.

    Hopefully, they will listen to us members of the public and also listen to our voice of reason and opinion, because we deserve to be heard.

    I wonder if they are forward thinking enough to attend any of the conferences (such as the upcoming London show)...

    Unless they might think it is not logical to attend a conference where all their licensee's as well as many prospective license holders would be in one place at the same time.

    I heard that representatives from the UKGC will be at ICE next week. I don't know in what capacity, but they will be there.

    That would certainly be sensible.
