Licensing authorities play a vital role in the regulation of gambling in Great Britain.

They issue premises licences, regulate gaming machines in clubs and pubs, register small society lotteries and much more. Read more about licensing authorities.

The Gambling Commission publishes a monthly Licensing Authority Bulletin which contains useful information for licensing authorities, police services, local councillors and community safety teams.
