Who Achieved GamCare Certification?
The Safer Gambling Standard is replacing GamCare Certification as the accreditation offered by GamCare from December 2018. All operators with current GamCare Certification will be able to continue to use the GamCare Certification logo until their certified period expires. Thereafter, the Safer Gambling Standard will be offered.
GamCare Certification applied to specific products and services provided by gambling operators which were assessed against GamCare’s Code of Practice in place at the time of the assessment. Code items reflected focal areas for Social Responsibility, such as age verification systems, standards of training, and quality of interactions. Certification was awarded to both remote and land based/non-remote gambling companies that implemented player protection policies relevant to their platform and gambling service.
Upon the expiry of their period of certification, which is two years from the date of the assessment for gambling operator land-based operations and one year for remote operations, the respective operators can apply to be assessed against the requirements of the Safer Gambling Standard.
