The Gambling Commission will be appearing at a specialist seminar on gambling advertising hosted by Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) and Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) on 26 March to set out for advertisers the proposed changes in the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill (the Bill).
Under the proposed changes all gambling advertisers wishing to advertise to consumers in Great Britain will require a Gambling Commission licence. Earlier this week the Bill was read for a third time in the House of Lords and the changes to the law could take effect as soon as the end of July.
The seminar will provide an outline of the regulatory framework governing gambling advertising and advice on the various key areas covered by CAP and Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice (BCAP) advertising codes in the light of a recently published Help Note.
The Gambling Commission’s Senior Manager for Remote Gambling, Paul Morris said:“The Commission works closely with CAP, BCAP and the ASA and sees this ‘Advice:am Gambling Advertising’ seminar as a first class opportunity to brief gambling advertisers on the changes ahead.”
This seminar is now fully booked. However, ASA are considering whether further seminars might be useful so anyone wishing to attend a future seminar on gambling advertising should email Zoë Kalu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
