The NSW Government is inviting community and industry feedback on a number of minor administrative changes being proposed as part of a mandatory remake of the Gaming Machines Regulation 2010 and Casino Control Regulation 2009, which are due to expire on 1 September.
The proposals seek to align the Regulations with modern practice by updating descriptions of compliance processes and general terminology.
There are also plans to update harm minimisation measures to help prevent and reduce gambling harms.
Casinos and venues with gaming machines need clear and effective regulations to ensure they operate with the highest standards of integrity and compliance, and practise responsible conduct of gambling.
The proposed regulations, and Regulatory Impact Statements explaining their effects, costs and benefits, are available on the Liquor & Gaming NSW website.
Feedback is welcome and will be considered before the proposed regulations are finalised.
Submissions close on Wednesday 17 July. To find out more about the proposed regulations and how to submit your feedback, visit www.liquorandgaming.nsw.gov.au/community-and-stakeholders/have-your-say/community-consultations/current-consultations.
