What is the LCCP? (Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice)
The LCCP is the rulebook setting out the measures that operators must take and contains other requirements that the UK Gambling Commission think are good practice. To run a business in a socially responsible way is to use the LCCP as a starting point, and build on these provisions to ensure that the operator puts its customers at the heart of its business.
Codes of practice are either:
- social responsibility code provisions - which must be adhered to by all licence holders
- ordinary code provisions – these do not have the status of licence conditions but failure to take account of them can be used as evidence in criminal or civil proceedings.
