Gambling regulation
It is the responsibility of the New Zealand Gambling Commission to deal with legal issues relating to gambling in New Zealand. This is a special body that was established in 2003 when the legislation was passed. The position of head of the Commission is held by Graeme Reeves.

The regulator works closely with the New Zealand Ministry of Health. Gambling addiction is monitored and statistics are kept and measures are taken to minimise the harm caused by gambling. All licensed operators are required to assist in these tasks. In addition, compliance with applicable gambling laws is monitored by the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs.
