Regulation for the National Consumer Protection Framework for online wagering

The National Framework provides – for the first time – strong, nationally consistent protections for consumers of Australian interactive wagering services.

It consists of 10 measures to empower individuals, and ensure the harm from online wagering is minimised. The measures will provide people with easy-to-use tools and information to better control their gambling from a voluntary opt-out pre-commitment scheme through to a national self-exclusion register.

The measures of the National Framework are being implemented over 18 months (from November 2018) through a mix of Commonwealth, state and territory regulatory frameworks.

Further information about gambling regulation in each Australian state and territory (such as relevant codes of practice and legislation) can be found at the website links in the table below.
