The prevention of money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism

Gambling Commission guidance for remote and non-remote casinos: Fifth edition (Revision 3).

1 - Introduction

In the Regulations, a key requirement is to make checks on customers, known as customer due diligence or CDD, which is designed to make it more difficult for the casino industry to be used for money laundering, terrorist financing or proliferation financing purposes. CDD is an integral part of the risk-based approach. It involves gathering information about the customer in order for the operator to assess the extent to which the customer exposes it to money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing risks. CDD should be applied on a risk-sensitive basis depending on the type of customer, the business relationship or the nature of the transactions or activity.
