Advice and guidance updates

E-learning modules - Pubs and the Gambling Act 2005

We announced last month that the Commission had worked with the Institute of Licensing to produce a new e-learning module about Pubs and the Gambling Act 2005 (opens in new tab) to add to the existing suite of gambling modules.

The new module is designed to help LAs and police improve their understanding of what to consider when undertaking compliance checks on the various forms of gambling permitted in pubs such as gaming machines, exempt gaming (bingo and poker) and lotteries.

Other gambling e-learning modules are already available:

  • three gaming machines modules which cover the various types of gaming machines, the physical components and signage requirements and how to deal with non-compliant machines
  • powers to enter inspect gambling premises
  • introduction to inspecting a betting premises.

All modules can be accessed via the IOL website (opens in new tab), and they are CPD accredited. Log in to the e-learning tab if you have an existing account, or request a log in via membership@instituteoflicensing.org to get started, if you are not an IOL member.

Information for operators reopening land based gambling premises

We continue to update our FAQs aimed at helping operators manage compliance with Government Covid-19 guidance on reopening with continued compliance with the licence conditions and codes of practice (LCCP).
