This consultation is now closed 

We are consulting on changes to our Remote gambling and software technical standards (RTS). The consultation marks the first full review of the RTS since it was first published in July 2007. It follows the publication of the updated Testing strategy for compliance with remote gambling and software technical standards in May 2016. 

The technical standards set out the key regulatory requirements to ensure fairness and transparency of remote gambling. 

The consultation seeks to ensure consumers are provided with sufficient information to gamble responsibly whilst delivering an effective and proportionate regulatory framework. This is achieved through the proposed introduction of new standards (eg use of third party software, live dealer standards and virtual sports betting) and reinforcement of existing requirements (eg displaying of transactions and financial limits).

The consultation provides an opportunity for you to comment on the proposed changes and to make any other suggestions, including on future revisions of the guidance.
