Customer interaction guidance - for remote gambling licensees (Formal guidance under SR Code 3.4.3 - not in effect)

Customer interaction guidance for remote gambling licensees (Formal guidance under Social Responsibility Code 3.4.3 - not in effect)

Section A - General requirements - Requirement 2

This guidance was originally published in June 2022. It is not in effect and operators are not required to take it into account.

Following our consultation on customer interaction, Social Responsibility Code Provision 3.4.3 for remote gambling licensees has been introduced and the majority of requirements are in effect from 12 September 2022.

We have issued this update on the regulatory requirements and status of formal guidance regarding customer interaction for remote gambling operators. We intend to conduct further consultation on matters to be addressed in the guidance associated with Social Responsibility Code Provision 3.4.3, by way of a consultation on the guidance document itself, likely to commence in late September. This consultation will be available on our consultations page.

The entirety of requirement 2 is not yet in effect.

2. Licensees must take into account the Commission’s guidance on customer interaction for remote licensees as published and revised from time to time (“the Guidance”).


The aim of this requirement is simply to ensure that licensees take into account this guidance, which has been developed to support effective delivery of customer interaction systems and processes that are designed to meet the outcomes of identifying and minimising harm, and that amendments over time are also taken into account.
