UK Gambling Commission welcomes new Economic Crime Plan

  • 0


The UK Government has published its new Economic Crime Plan, which sets out priority areas for combating economic crime, such as money laundering and terrorist financing.

The new plan has been agreed between the Chancellor, the Home Secretary, major financial institutions, legal, accountancy and property organisations, and law enforcement, including the UK Gambling Commission.

As a statutory supervisor under the money laundering regulations, the UK Gambling Commission endorses the plan and looks forward to contributing to its delivery.

Gambling operators will play a vital role in assisting the Commission and the UK Government. They have to amend their risk assessments, policies and other controls wherever necessary.
