Regulatory settlements applied for socially responsible purposes
When the Commission takes regulatory action against a gambling operator, an outcome of that action can include a payment in lieu of the financial penalty the Commission might otherwise impose for breach of a licence condition. This is set in accordance with the Statement of Principles for Determining Financial Penalties.
We publish the details of those enforcement cases and regulatory settlements on our news page. For more information, see our approach to regulating the gambling industry.
A regulatory settlement can include payment to an organisation for socially responsible purposes.
