Single machine application for a permit - Guidance notes
Gambling Commission guidance notes to assist completing an application form for a single machine permit.
Section 3 - Notification of convictions
Section 3 is where you provide the Gambling Commission with details of any criminal convictions you have.
State whether the applicant has been convicted of a relevant offence1 and whether the applicant has been convicted of any other offence.
In relation to relevant offences, both spent and unspent convictions must be declared.
Indicate whether you, the entity or any of its directors, partners or officers, have ever been found guilty of any relevant criminal offence in the United Kingdom (UK) or abroad, including any offences where the sentence was a fixed penalty fine. Provide details of the offence(s), including penalties, dates, location, court and any other details including any reference number where known.
The Commission undertakes to discuss any matter revealed in a notification of conviction with the person before recommending refusal. All applicants are entitled to a personal hearing before such a refusal.
Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar a person from holding a licence from the Commission. This will depend on all the circumstances of that particular case. However, failure to disclose this information will be a factor when considering your honesty.
Q8a. If you are an individual applicant, provide details of any criminal convictions against this question.
Q8b. If you are an entity, provide details of any criminal convictions against this question.
