Mandatory Code of Practice
The Responsible Gambling Mandatory Code of Practice for Tasmania was introduced in March 2012. It was developed to minimise harm from gambling in the Tasmanian community and sought to make gambling environments safer. The Code ensures Tasmanians have clear information about gambling so that they can better understand it and make informed choices about whether to participate.

Reflective of the Code are The Commission's Rules for all licence holders.
The Code defines problem gambling as being characterised by difficulties in limiting money and/or time spent on gambling, which leads to adverse consequences for the gambler, others, or for the community.
