Why Alderney

Welcome to The Alderney Gambling Control Commission

This site contains all the information and application forms that an eGambling company would need to make an informed decision about choosing to locate to Alderney.


The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) was established in May 2000. The Commission, consisting of the Chairman and three members, is independent and non political, and regulates eGambling on behalf of the States of Alderney. The Commission ensures that its regulatory and supervisory approach meets the very highest of international standards.

Further details about the role and responsibilities of the AGCC, the process of applying for a licence, together with information regarding our licensees and player protection, are available by selecting from the menu options above.

The British Channel Islands are self governing dependencies of the Crown, but they are not part of the United Kingdom, nor are they part of the European Union. The Channel Islands are recognised as one of the world's leading offshore finance centres and have in recent years established themselves as e-commerce centres of excellence.

Alderney, the third largest of the Channel Islands and one of the constitutive islands of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, is approximately 8 miles from France and 60 miles from mainland Britain. It has its own government, legislature and company laws and operates with the same modern banking, insurance and investment laws as Guernsey. The Guernsey Financial Services Commission is a statutory body responsible for ensuring that the finance industry on Guernsey and Alderney is well regulated. Alderney is subject to the provisions of Guernsey taxation laws.

Alderney licensees are by law permitted to take advantage of the modern hosting facilities and reliable telecommunication networks on both Alderney and Guernsey. For international network links, Alderney and Guernsey's telecommunication network offers reliable and high capacity links to the UK, Europe, the USA and Asia.
