Recent and upcoming changes to Licence conditions and codes of practice

LCCP is not static - we update it to reflect developments in the industry or emerging evidence on the most effective means of promoting socially responsible gambling.

The areas of general compliance for all operators are listed on the top right of this page. For sector specific compliance scroll to the bottom.

Upcoming amendments to LCCP

We have also published a new version of LCCP to incorporate the new remote ‘host’ operating licences that are being introduced following the recent fees consultation.

LCCP January 2017 will take effect when the new licences are introduced by DCMS in regulations - this is expected to be April. Only host operating licences will be affected.
