Action we can take against licensees

Businesses and individuals who do not follow rules and regulations aimed at ensuring gambling is fair, safe and crime-free can expect regulatory action.

Our general approach is to help gambling businesses comply with the law and the regulations we set out. When we must take action we have a range of powers including:

  • issuing a warning
  • attaching an additional licence condition
  • removing or amending a licence condition
  • suspending a licence
  • revoking a licence
  • imposing a financial penalty.
