UKGC committed to evaluating Gambling Review proposal
  • UKGC fully committed to measuring evaluation of Gambling Review proposal
  • Merticulous approach to be implemented: Taylor
  • Insights to be gathered for future policy changes

UKGC outline committment to measure evaluation of Gambling Review proposal

David Taylor, who serves as the Head of Evidence Assurance and Evaluation at the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), has outlined a meticulous approach to assessing the potential measures of the Gambling Act Review and their effectiveness.

Taylor stressed that the involvement of the UKGC in gambling regulation changes in the UK extends beyond the implementation phase. Together with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), they are committed to closely monitoring and evaluating these measures.

Among the proposed changes to UK gambling are protocols for how companies interact with customers and regulations concerning the content of both land-based and remote gaming products. Taylor emphasised the importance of evaluating whether these measures achieve their intended outcomes, while also identifying any unintended consequences and gathering insights to inform future policy changes.

He underscored the necessity of adopting a proportionate approach, ensuring that not only individual rule changes deliver desired outcomes but also considering their collective impact within the broader regulatory framework.

To facilitate this evaluation process, the UKGC and DCMS have engaged NatCen to design a framework outlining options for process and impact evaluations. This framework will provide practical recommendations for implementation and identify the necessary data for monitoring outcomes.

Taylor emphasized the significance of leveraging NatCen’s evaluation expertise to determine the most suitable approach, which may include conducting evaluation trials once final policy positions and implementation dates are determined following the consultation process.

These statements were made as the consultation process on proposed changes related to financial penalties and financial key event reporting concluded on March 15. The UKGC intends to provide further details on its evaluation approach through policy consultations, response documents, and other updates.
