Victoria’s liquor & gaming regulator changes its name

January 27, 2022

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) has become the Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC).

The name change came into play on 1 January 2022 following legislation passed by the Victorian Parliament in December 2021 following findings during the Royal Commission into Crown Melbourne’s suitability to retain its license. This included evidence that the VCGLR lacked the resources to properly regulate Crown and that Crown had repeatedly failed to adhere to the VCGLR’s guidance around anti-money laundering and other compliance issues.

The VGCCC will continue to regulate gambling and liquor until later this year when new arrangements for liquor regulation will be introduced in parliament. Once passed, liquor regulation will be transferred to the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS).

All liquor-related forms remain valid until further notice.
