The GB Gambling Commission has established a new body called the Industry Forum, in a move to improve its understanding of operators’ insights.

The forum will aim to give the Commission more insight into the views of operators. It will act as a companion to several stakeholder engagement initiatives and advisory groups. These include the Commission’s Lived Experience Advisory Panel and Advisory Board for Safer Gambling.

The forum will also sit alongside the Commission’s consumer research activities. It will also aid relationships with customer insight companies and relationships with regulators worldwide.

The creation of the forum comes after the Commission attempted to clarify “misunderstandings” surrounding financial risk checks – also known as affordability checks – in a blog post last week.
