Under this licence structure, the AGCO issues licences in six categories. Some licence categories include classes and endorsements for additional activities.
- Applicants selecting the Manufacturer’s Licence, for example, will choose their applicable core activity from three licence types (Brewery, Winery or Distillery). They can also add secondary or additional activities by selecting from five endorsements.
Note: The LLCA also provides for a Licence to Operate as a Wholesaler category; however, the regulation provides that the Registrar shall not issue this licence.
