National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Industry Code for the Display of Safer Gambling Information (GamCare)


October 2021

All Betting and Gaming Council members were required to adopt the Industry Code for the display of Safer Gambling Information by August of this year. This was strengthened in October with the publication of a universal logo for access to safer gambling tools and support which is required by the code to be implemented by operators by March 2022.

A link to the code and the logo can be found here ( From November 2021 GamCare will set out to develop an equivalent code for the land based gambling sectors, as well as commission independent evaluation of both land based and online codes.

April 2021

GamCare have been consulting with Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) members and other stakeholders to improve signposting to safer gambling tools, treatment and support for customers and make them more consistent. A new industry Code for gambling websites and apps has been launched which BGC members have committed to implementing by August 2021. The new Code sets out minimum standards for the placement of safer gambling information online, content requirements and presentation of such information. An equivalent code for gambling venues is due to be developed later in 2021 and the impacts of both Codes are due to be evaluated. See for more information
