Changes to regulatory returns for non-remote and gambling software licences

We have made minor changes to the regulatory returns module on the eServices Hub. For non-remote licensees (except casinos) we have removed the question requiring operators to tell us the addresses of individual gambling premises. We have also removed the requirement for gambling software licence holders to report software titles via regulatory returns. Instead, software titles are to be reported solely via the games register module.

These changes follow a consultation on LCCP information requirements, regulatory returns, official statistics and related matters held earlier this year.

The next e-bulletin will be available on 30 November 2020
