Templeman Stephen Francis

Account number:
Decision date:
8 February 2024


Following a licence review, Mr Steven Templeman’s Personal Management Licence (PML / the Licensee) the Commission determined the Licensee breached paragraph 1 of the general conditions attached to personal licences under Section 75 of the Gambling Act 2005 and issued him with a warning under section 117(1)(a) of the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act).

As a Personal Management Licence holder employed by TGP Europe Limited (TGP) as the Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO) and Director of strategic growth, Mr Templeman failed to take reasonable steps to ensure TGP’s compliance with the requirements of paragraph 2 of social responsibility code provision 3.4.1 (Customer interaction) relevant at the time of the failings. Mr Templeman also failed to take reasonable steps to ensure TGP Europe Limited had appropriate policies, procedures, and controls to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing in breach of licence condition 12.1.1 and 12.1.2.  

Mr Templeman has been open and transparent throughout our engagement with him.
