IBAS to Run Rule Over Greyhounds - Racing Post - Friday 31st August 2007

IBAS, the Independent Betting Adjudication Service, is to establish a link with greyhound racing as the sport embraces the new regulations under the Gambling Commission licensing scheme writes Phil Donaldson.

From tomorrow, it becomes a legal requirement that every bookmaker - in whatever definition of the term - must name an independent agent for adjudication purposes.

In light of that, the sport's racecourse promoters' association is in the process of reorganising IBAS as its official point of redress, both for on-course bookmakers and tote pools.

Chris O'Keeffe, IBAS chief executive, said: "We see this as a positive link-up, and I've been working with Nottingham's Rachel Corden to secure the deal.

"It is to become law that bookmakers must make clients aware of their adjudicator, and we're happy to represent what will be in excess of 130 on-course layers.

"We will also be the point of call for the tote pools at each of the NGRC racetracks."
