Telecommunications System Submission Requirement Checklist

Section 135 (2) of the Racing Integrity Act 2016 provides that a bookmaker licensed in Queensland may apply to offer their service online as well as on-course and over the telephone.

The Telecommunications System Submission Requirement Checklist is used to assess that an application for bookmaking over a telecommunications system, specifically online, is fit for purpose. The Checklist’s primary objective is to ensure the integrity of bets made, protect the money and privacy of persons placing bets and to ensure that the operation has the highest regard for the responsible delivery of wagering.

This approach promotes and implements best practice in online telecommunications in the following areas of:

  1. Integrity.
  2. Customer experience.
  3. Responsible gambling.
  4. Privacy; and
  5. Audit ability.

Initial and ongoing approval is subject to adherence to the conditions set out in the Telecommunications System Submission Requirement Checklist. In addition, the Commission may make an approval subject to further conditions not outlined in this document at its sole discretion.
