Local licensing authorities are required to send us data and information as part of the shared regulation framework for gambling set up by the Gambling Act 2005 (opens in a new tab).
We need the following data and information from licensing authorities:
- age verification test purchase results
- club gaming permits and club machine permits
- information about gambling-related crime
- licensing authority annual returns
- licensing authority compliance events
- local authority lotteries
- premises licences
- small society lotteries.
Shared regulation depends on effective partnerships and collaboration, enabled by the mutual exchange of data and information. Licensing authorities play a particular role in regulating gambling activity at a local level. The data and information they provide allows us to have a national level joined-up view of gambling regulation. This informs our work to deliver the licensing objectives and our duty to advise the Secretary of State about the incidence of gambling and the way it is conducted.
This guidance explains what data and information we need from licensing authorities and how they must send it to us. It is a simple version of content contained within our formal guidance to licensing authorities.Previous section
