All the machines you supply to gambling businesses licensed in Great Britain must comply with the gaming machine technical standards.
The licence does not permit you to manufacture a gaming machine or gaming machine software. You will need a gaming machine technical (full) or gaming machine technical (software) operating licence to conduct manufacturing activities.

If you apply for a non-remote gaming machine technical (supplier) licence and also want to supply gaming machine software by file transfer protocol (FTP) or by email, you may need to apply for an ancillary remote licence in addition to your non-remote licence.
The gaming machine technical ancillary licence permits the supply of gaming machine software by FTP or email only, and is subject to the condition that you can only generate an annual value of gross sales which:
- is less than the total annual value of gross sales you generate through your non-remote operating licence and (if you hold it) the non-remote gambling software operating licence
- does not, in any event, exceed £50,000.
Ancillary remote application fee: £100
There is no annual fee for this ancillary remote operating licence.
If your business uses any other form of remote communication, or if it does not meet the conditions of the ancillary licence outlined previously, you should apply for a remote gaming machine technical licence.
