bacta underlines responsibility commitment in updated charter & code

bacta – the trade association for UK amusement and gaming machine industry stakeholders has moved to update its social responsibility charter and code of practice.

Seeking to develop its strongest responsibility code, starting this month bacta will demand that all its 490 members abide by ‘thirteen pledges’ on principals relating to player protections, staff training, premises maintenance and age verification.

Supporting its mandate, bacta develops an enhanced charter informing members of on how they can develop comprehensive responsibility frameworks, ensuring that young audiences are excluded from adult-only premises and machines, and operate a self-exclusion scheme for people at risk of gambling harm.

Updating members and stakeholders, John White, CEO of bacta, comments: “Social responsibility is a matter of the utmost importance for bacta and all our members. This updated charter reinforces our commitment to creating a socially responsible environment for every customer and ensuring we follow best practice on player protection.

“Only by creating a safe environment for players can we ensure that the industry delivers the fun, family-friendly experience that customers expect.”

The implementation of the new charter underlines bacta’s commitment to social responsibility and ensuring a safe and fun environment for players across the amusement industry.

Prior to 2018’s annual convention, bacta hosted a ‘Social Responsibility Exchange’ that brought together operators, regulators and addiction experts to discuss how player protection measures can be further enhanced.

The updated charter replaces the previous version from 2015. It can be read in full here: https://bacta.org.uk/download/6387/
