Who can apply for a manufacturer representative license

You must apply for a manufacturer's representative license if you sell, promote, or provide a manufacturer's gambling equipment, or supplies, or you supervise those who do.

If you are a licensed manufacturer representative, you may represent more than one licensed manufacturer.

If you are a substantial interest holder in a manufacturer, you do not need an individual license to perform representative duties connected with that licensed business.
