The Commission
About the Commission

The Commission is the regulator for casino operations in the Republic of Cyprus. We license and regulate both the casino operator and individuals working in the casino industry, including casino employees, machine suppliers, junket operators and those providing test laboratory services.

In addition to licensing and regulating the casino operator and individuals working in the casino industry, we have a duty to protect the public, including vulnerable groups and young people, from the negative effects of casino gaming and to implement appropriate protective measures where necessary.

We have much to achieve quickly following the Commission’s establishment in 2017 and becoming operational (January 2018). In the next four years we must establish a new regulatory framework and supervision capability for casino gaming in Cyprus, through the ICR, keeping this under constant review to ensure it remains fit for purpose.

Everything we do is underpinned by our statutory objectives.
