Enforcement policy in relation to the National Lottery
How will decisions be reached?
The operator will have an opportunity to make written representations before a decision is reached as to whether they have acted in breach of a licence condition or otherwise not acted in accordance with the statutory objectives under section 4 of the Act as set out within the Investigations section of this policy. The operator will also have an opportunity to make written representations as to what sanction or other action (if any) we decide to impose or take2.
We will follow a three3 staged approach as to decisions on what regulatory action (if any) should be taken.
2 This is subject to the specific rules governing the imposition of Financial Penalties where the operator can request an oral hearing to make representations.
3 This has been amended from the original PDF as there are three stages and not four.
