Duties and responsibilities under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

This advice explains how operators can make sure they and their employees comply with their obligations under The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA).

2 - Who is this intended for?

This advice is directed at all holders of operating licences issued by the Gambling Commission (the Commission), excluding non-remote and remote casino operating licence holders who are provided with separate guidance in relation to anti-money laundering (AML) and counter terrorist financing.

The advice is detailed and aimed primarily at operators with a number of employees, either full time or part time. However, operators with few or no employees are still required to understand and comply with the requirements of POCA.
