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.
The Commission released an Options Paper identifying a number of initiatives as potential Code enhancements that might make a difference to minimising harm. All Licensed Premises Gaming Licence holders, together with other key stakeholders, were invited to provide a submission. The consultation process closed on 15 September 2017.
Following consideration of arguments put forward in the submissions, the Commission released an Interim Outcomes Paper inviting further feedback on operational implementation issues from those stakeholders who had responded to the Options Paper. On 30 November 2017, the Commission released the following Final Outcomes Paper summarising the review process and a brief explanation supporting the Commission’s final position on all of the initiatives considered.
