Consultation response

Changes to LCCP on ADR, CI and RET contributions

A summary of the responses to our consultations on changes to LCCP requirements for customer interaction and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) providers.


The Gambling Commission

We license and regulate commercial gambling within Great Britain, including the National Lottery, with the exception of spread betting which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) (opens in new tab). We exist to safeguard consumers and the wider public by ensuring that gambling is fair and safe. We are focusing on a number of priorities to achieve this as set out in our Strategy 2018 to 2021 to:

  • Protect the interests of consumers
  • Raise standards in the gambling market
  • Improve the way we regulate

Our functions under the Act include:

  • licensing operators and individuals
  • monitoring compliance with licence conditions and the law
  • investigation and enforcement, both in relation to licensees and illegal (unlicensed) gambling
  • providing advice to central and local government on the incidence, manner, effects and regulation of gambling.

We have a statutory duty to aim to permit gambling provided that it is reasonably consistent with the licensing objectives of:

  • Preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder or being used to support crime,
  • Ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way, and
  • Protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.
