Reviewing a licence

We have the power to review the performance of licence holders against the terms of their licence.

We might decide to review a licence if we:

  • suspect that a licence condition has been breached
  • believe the licence holder, or any person connected with the gambling activities, has been convicted of a relevant offence in Great Britain or abroad
  • suspect the licence holder may be unsuitable to perform the licensed activities
  • think a review would be appropriate. 

This means that a licence could be reviewed solely on the grounds, for example, that it has been held for a long period of time. 

The right to appeal against our regulatory sanctions 

The First-tier Tribunal (Gambling) is an independent body set up to hear appeals against the decisions of the Gambling Commission.
