A National Consumer Protection Framework For Online Wagering In Australia
COAG Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) – A National Consumer Protection Framework for online wagering in Australia
On 19 May 2017, the Commonwealth Department of Social Services (DSS) released a consultation RIS on the National Consumer Protection Framework for online wagering in Australia (The Framework). The Framework will seek to put in place nationally-consistent consumer protection measures for individuals using licensed online wagering products in Australia. DSS has prepared this RIS in consultation with state and territory government officials. This RIS has been assessed as adequate by the Office of Best Practice Regulation.
DSS is seeking further information and feedback from industry, consumers and other stakeholders through consultation. The consultation period is now open and will close for submissions on 16 June 2017.
