The Personal Management Licence regime: An impossible tightrope?

Tom Orpin-Massey of QEB Hollis Whiteman Chambers co-authors with David Whyte of Harris Hagan an article considering the Personal Management Licence (PML) regime and the difficulties PML holders may face.

Personal management licences issued by the Gambling Commission of Great Britain are held by those occupying specified management roles at licensed gambling operators. They are the key individuals at operators responsible for overall strategy, finance, marketing, information technology, oversight of day-to-day management of certain premises, regulatory compliance, and anti-money laundering.

The PML licensing regime for these senior managers creates a personal responsibility for regulatory compliance, both in the way that they conduct themselves in their role, and the way in which they have management responsibility for the behaviour of the operator for whom they work.

Tom and David consider whether this regime presents an impossible tightrope for any individual to tread.
