Changes to licence condition 8.1 (display of licensed status)
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).
Our functions 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 if it is reasonably consistent with the licensing objectives.Next section
