The Annual Report, published today, looks back at performance and progress by the organisation over the last financial year.
2017-18 saw a clear focus on change for both the industry and the Commission including the launch of a three-year strategy setting out the road map to make gambling fairer and safer in Britain.
The year also saw the implementation of a new enforcement strategy which resulted in larger penalty packages for failings to protect consumers. A significant achievement for the regulator over this time was raising awareness of gambling-related harm and making progress in problem gambling being recognised as a public health issue.
In March 2018 the Commission submitted its comprehensive evidence and advice to Government as part of the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures – at the heart of that work was protecting consumers and preventing gambling-related harm.
