The National Consumer Protection Framework for Online Gambling is now in place

The Hon Paul Fletcher MP, Minister for Families and Social Services has recently released a media release on the First National Framework to help reduce harm from online wagering.

All Australian governments are now formally committed to the country’s first National Consumer Protection Framework to ensure greater protection for people participating in
online wagering. Federal Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, said the National Consumer Protection Framework for online wagering provides 10 strong, nationally consistent minimum protections for consumers of Australian interactive wagering services.

“The National Framework has been developed in response to the recommendations made in the 2015 O’Farrell Review of Illegal Offshore Wagering,” Mr Fletcher said.
