HM Treasury approval of guidance for remote and non-remote casinos

06 April 2020

HM Treasury has formally approved the Gambling Commission’s guidance for non-remote and remote casinos.

HM Treasury has formally approved the Gambling Commission’s guidance for non-remote and remote casinos. A note reflecting this approval has been added to page 89 of the guidance as published in January 2020. No other changes have been made to the document.

This approval means that a court must take into account this guidance when considering whether a person in the casino sector has committed the offence of failing to report suspected money laundering or terrorist financing. Similarly, the Terrorism Act requires a court to take account of such approved industry guidance when considering whether a person has failed to report under that Act. A court must also consider whether someone has followed this guidance if they are prosecuted for failing to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations.
