UK’s DCMS Issues No Deal Brexit Checklist for Gambling OperatorsReading Time: 1 minute


The UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has issued an eight-point checklist for the gambling operators to prepare for a potential no-deal Brexit.

Three of these points involve staffing issues, including whether staff needs a visa or work permit for the countries in which they plan to work, whether staff needs to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme and to ensure they meet certain immigration rules, including “crossing into Spain from Gibraltar.” Gibraltar is where many UK-licensed gambling operators chose to base their EU-facing business.

The UK government also believes gambling operators need to ensure that there are no legal issues with their handling of personal data from the EU and European Economic Area. Operators also need to ensure their accounting and reporting practices meet EU/EEA requirements.

UK-based online gambling operators that provide services to customers in EU markets need to appoint an EU representative to ensure their online security standards make the grade. Existing contracts must be scrutinised to ensure that operators have the necessary copyright permissions to offer certain licensed content outside the UK.
