The "Part 4" scheme [more here]
When a person is barred from gambling, it is a criminal oiffence for the person to breach the order (eg, by entering a gaming room or placing a bet).
A barring can be either voluntary (the gambler makes the request to be barred) or involuntary (someone other than the gambler initiates the process for the gambler to be barred).
The Independent Gambling Authority can bar a person from participating in a gambling activity (for example: casino table games, gaming machines, betting, lotteries) or from being on a premises where a gambling activity is undertaken. These orders have a maximum life of 3 years and can be extended.
Similarly, gambling providers can make barring order for 3 months. Decisions about these barrings are reported to the Authority which then contacts the people concerned for a review. The review process brings individual barrings into the system and provides for people to find out about other services, such as counselling.
The law on barring is set out in Part 4 of the Independent Gambling Authority Act 1995.
Family Protection Orders [more here]
Under the Problem Gambling Family Protection Orders Act 2004 (the PGFPO Act), the Independent Gambling Authority can receive complaints about a person whose gambling is affecting family members dependent on that person for their needs and welfare.
The PGFPO Act defines who can make a complaint. A complaint is made by attending an interview at the Authority’s offices.
The Authority has powers to make orders to address the person's problem gambling behaviour. These can include: barring from gambling locations and forms of gambling, requirements to attend counselling, and requirements about payment of wages.
