IGC Also Beefs Up its Code of Conduct

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 25, 2005 [stuff about survey removed]Separately, the IGC has strengthened its Code of Conduct, which all of its members are obligated to follow. At its meeting last month, the IGC Board of Directors approved the first revisions to the code in five years. The new code states that, to ensure fairness, operators of online games should have each games performance analyzed by an independent, qualified person on a regular basis. It requires members to implement anti-money laundering procedures, and directs them to use age and identity verification services as part of their efforts to prevent access to their sites by minors. The code also states that members agree to the IGC performing checks on their compliance with the code. The complete code is on the IGC Web site at

.

In five years, the industry has matured and technology has changed, so it was important to update and improve our Code of Conduct, said Keith Furlong, Deputy Director of the IGC. We recognize that there are limitations to what any trade organization can do to enforce proper behavior by its members, but this new code reinforces the point to our members, and to prospective members, that the IGC demands high standards. Ultimately, it is the duty of governments worldwide to use their power to license and regulate all forms of gaming for the protection of their citizens. Sadly, few governments have stepped up to the challenge of regulating online gaming, and the IGC is doing what it can to fill that void.
