Regulatory data collection consultation

Consultation start date: 16 November 2016

Consultation end date: 13 January 2017


In the regulatory data collection consultation we set out our proposals to change some parts of the regulatory data that we require licensed operators to provide to us.

The main focus of the consultation was on regulatory returns data, which all operators are required to complete and submit as a condition of their licence either on an annual or quarterly basis.

It set out our intention to make these changes through a phased approach, with a focus on making those changes which are more time-critical (for example because of their importance to the proposed changes to fees) during the first phase.


August 2017 - we accidentally omitted question 14 (on seasonal employees) from our response to this consultation - you can see our response in this consultation addendum.

We have taken the decision to split the consultation responses into:

The second part contains changes which will be made to the system from April 2018.
