The power to delegate

4.1. The Gambling Commission may delegate a function to a Commissioner, a committee of Commissioners and employees or an employee of the Commission. The role of committees is to exercise functions delegated to them by the Board of the Commission. This may include providing detailed consideration of specific areas of work, advising the Commission, and promoting more effective communication between the Commission and particular stakeholders.

4.2 This section describes the functions which have been reserved to the Commission and the functions which have been delegated to committees or to the Chief Executive under the terms of paragraph 8, Schedule 4 of the Gambling Act 2005 (opens in new tab). These arrangements are referred to as the Commission’s Delegated Powers. The Board may choose to delegate to the Chief Executive or another specified Commission employee specific matters which would otherwise be reserved to the Board.
