Australia Will Create A National Register Of Self-Slip
The australian parliament adopted the law on the establishment of a national registry of self-slip. The government welcomed the adoption of legislation and noted that now the critical gap in the protection of consumer rights is eliminated.
The senate and the house of representatives adopted the law on introduction of self-compliance programs, as well as prascribed auxiliary norms that will provide financial guarantees and cover the cost of launching the system.
Legislation enshrining changes in the online segment, gives a gambling regulator, – australian communication and media management (acma), – responsibility for supervising operations related to the work of self-slip.
The gambling regulator undertakes to organize the work of the controlling agency, which will manage the database of the self-compliance program. If the player has submitted an application for recruitment to the registry, licensed gambling operators of australia are required to stop any marketing activities aimed at attracting them to gambling.
Operators who neglect this obligation or allow customers from the program to register an account on their resource will be fined. The size of the sanction may vary from 60 to 180 penal units.
The penalty unit varies depending on which state was the state of violation, and, as a rule, is at least 100 australian dollars.
Supporting legislation on cost recovery assumptions assumes the empowerment of the gambling regulator to determine the tax rate for each specific licensee. However, the collected amount in total should not exceed the cost of the gambling regulator to implement the self-slip program.
Minister for family and social services ann rough stated that the measure would provide the authority to the authority to collect funds for the implementation of the project.
The registry, according to the policy, will allow australians quickly and easily protect themselves from gambling. She also thanked the organization tabcorp, responsible wagering australia and financial counselling australia for their contribution to the project.
Recall that the australian gembling operators have 14 days for the identification procedure of players.
