The factors we consider when we look to end a suspension

Whilst a suspension is ongoing the Commission will periodically review the circumstances to ensure that it remains proportionate for the suspension to continue. The Licensee will always be informed of what measures it must take to enable us to properly lift the suspension. Factors to which the Commission will pay significant regard are:

  • customer protection
  • effective risk-based controls
  • adequate safer gambling provisions

The Commission advises all licensees that it will continue to use suspension when appropriate to protect consumers and the licensing objectives.
