The Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS), founded in 1998, is a third party organisation that settles disputes between gambling establishments registered with IBAS and their customers in the United Kingdom. The organisation, which was originally part of the Sporting Life’s Green Seal service, was formerly known as the Independent Betting Arbitration Service. The company, headed by CEO Chris O’Keeffe, dropped Arbitration from the organisation’s name in 2007, opting instead to use Adjudication to better reflect its role after the enactment of the 2005 Gambling Act.

IBAS deals with several sectors in the realm of gambling. The sectors include:

All disputes are referred to the service via a standard IBAS arbitration form on which full details of the dispute should be provided. IBAS does not under any circumstances rule on disputes in person or over the telephone.
