Established in May 2000, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission is an independent and non-political regulatory body responsible for regulating e-Gambling on behalf of the States of Alderney. Comprising the Chairman and three members, the Commission operates under the principle of maintaining the highest international standards of regulatory and supervisory practices.
The AGCC has gained recognition as one of the world's leading offshore regulatory bodies, surpassing its competitors in terms of e-Gambling traffic transmission. Its strategic location in the British Channel Islands, which are self-governing dependencies of the Crown, has allowed Alderney to establish itself as an offshore finance center and an e-commerce hub. This unique position has attracted numerous esports operators seeking a reputable and well-regulated licensing jurisdiction.
Central to the AGCC's mission is the guarantee of player protection and the preservation of fair gaming practices within the esports industry. The Commission ensures that all e-Gambling activities under its jurisdiction are carried out honestly, fairly, and in line with principles of good governance. By enforcing strict regulations and monitoring mechanisms, the AGCC aims to prevent criminal influence, protect vulnerable individuals, and maintain the integrity of the industry.
To achieve these goals, the AGCC collaborates with various agencies and organizations, such as the Guernsey Police, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, and the Guernsey Financial Intelligence Unit. These partnerships allow for effective supervision and regulation of e-Gambling activities, minimizing the risks of money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit activities.
