Red-tape reduction—copies of codes of practice

9 June 2016

With the publication of the Gambling Codes of Practice (General) Variation Notice 2016, gambling providers will no longer need to provide a copy of the whole code of practice on request if they have an approved summary available. Of course, the codes are an essential document for gambling providers to have on premises (so that they can know what their obligations are), but they will no longer be required to keep a current printed version available to provide on request.

Peak bodies are able to obtain approval of a summary on behalf of those they represent. Anyone interested in developing a code summary should contact the Authority's Director.
