Rga Appoint Kpmg For Self Exclusion Study

In collaboration with the KPMG and the UK Gambling Commission

The Remote Gaming Association (RGA) has appointed KPMG to undertake a scoping study of the National Online Self-Exclusion Scheme (NOSES) followed by KPMG's continued support and advice during the implementation process.
The study follows the UK Gambling Commission's decision earlier this year that the NOSES should be led, designed and implemented by the online industry itself.
The aim of the project is to provide consumers with a single process whereby they can self-exclude themselves from all online gambling operators that are licensed by the Gambling Commission as well as provide help for problem gamblers in terms of specialist advice and support services.
"Self-exclusion can be a vitally important tool, especially for problem gamblers or those who are at risk of developing problems," Clive Hawkswood, chief executive of the RGA commented. "Self-exclusions have long been offered on a company basis, but in terms of consumer protection it will be a huge step forward to have a single national scheme of the type envisaged by government and the Gambling Commission".
The RGA, in collaboration with KPMG, envisages the new system to be in place by the end of 2017.
Paul Hope, programme director for the UK Gambling Commission expressed his gratitude to the RGA for developing the scheme on behalf of the online sector, saying: "The Commission will work with the RGA to achieve our shared objective of a scheme that is focused on what works best for people that would benefit from using it."
