First Review of the Responsible Gambling Mandatory Code of Practice for Tasmania

The Responsible Gambling Mandatory Code of Practice for Tasmania was first introduced in 2012 and established a range of measures to achieve gambling harm minimisation. The Tasmanian Liquor and Gaming Commission is reviewing the Code (in accordance with the Gaming Control Act 1993) to ensure that the harm minimisation measures within it continue to be effective, relevant and sufficient.

As an important part of the Review, the Commission has released the attached Options Paper identifying a number of initiatives as potential Code enhancements that might make a difference to minimising harm. The Commission is mindful that the suggestions need to consider what is achievable and practical in Tasmania, while balancing the interests of a diverse group of stakeholders.

The information gained from this consultation process will assist the Commission in completing its assessment of the Code and in determining whether enhancements are necessary to build on existing industry practice.

The Options Paper inviting stakeholder comment is available here.
