We conducted two consultations at the end of 2013 with proposed
changes to Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice
(LCCP). The consultations included suggested amendments to licence
conditions and codes of practice for both remote and non-remote
operators. We also completed a short supplementary
consultation in April 2014 on the reporting of suspicious activity
report unique reference numbers to the Commission.
Following these three consultations, we have published the changes
to LCCP in three parts, although these changes will all come into
force at the same time (4 August 2014):
LCCP changes part one: published 31 March. This includes the
majority of the LCCP changes applying to both non-remote and
remote operators, such as those relating to complaints and disputes
and information requirements.
LCCP changes part two: published 30 April: protection of
customer funds. The revised provisions on this topic will apply to
both remote and non-remote operators.
LCCP changes part three: published 30 April: This contains
one change which applies to all operators, on the notification of
suspicious activity report unique reference numbers to the
Commission. The remaining changes are relevant only for remote
operators and gambling software operators, such as
requirements to use only gambling software supplied by licensed
operators and changes relating to the display of licensed status,
poker and other networks, and payment processors.
We have now published
Licence conditions and codes of practice (consolidated May
to incorporate all of these amendments. This will be followed
in due course by updated sector-specific extracts of LCCP.
As part of our ongoing process of reviewing our regulatory
approach, we will be consulting on and implementing further changes
to LCCP. These will include:
As previously announced the proposed LCCP requirement to only
obtain gambling software from a Commission licensed gambling
software operator will come into force in January 2015. We have now
announced that the exact date for this requirement to come into
force will be 30 January 2015.
