When to apply

You should apply for PMLs for people in qualifying management positions within your business at the same time as applying for your operating licence.

You may not need a PML if your business is considered a Small Scale Operator.

Until we issue your PML, you should not carry out the responsibilities that the PML allows you to do, for example, making strategic and operational decisions.
