We think that the most effective regulatory approach is to focus on the outcomes to be achieved.

In some areas we specify particular rules or processes, but where possible, we aim to allow you to take your own approach to meet our requirements.

The LCCP is not static, we make amendments or additions to take account of developments in the industry or emerging evidence on the most effective means of promoting socially responsible gambling.
