In conjunction with the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), the Sports Betting Integrity Forum (SBIF) has released its second consultancy paper ‘Sport & Sports Betting Integrity Action Plan (SBI Action Plan)’ for 2017.
The second SBI Action Plan paper seeks to outline Great Britain’s approach to addressing the current risks to sports integrity and the monitoring of sports betting industry and its various stakeholders.
Building on the work of the first SBI paper published in 2015, the second edition aims to build a collaborative approach across sports for betting operators, law enforcement and government to prevent and deter to protect against sports betting-related corruption.
The purpose of the SBI Action Plan is to put in place a framework of actions to prevent sporting events and licensed sporting betting markets from being corrupted, and further deterring persons from organising corrupt sports events to manipulate betting markets
A crucial area outlined in its 2017 report is t the need for key stakeholders to plan for and act within their areas of responsibility, support others where appropriate and work in unison as part of the broader national platform that is the basis of our strategic approach
