  Licensure is the cornerstone of the regulatory system. Licenses are required of casino owners and operators, casino employees, and companies that do business with casinos in order to ensure that those involved with this industry meet the statutory requirements of good character, honesty and integrity and to keep the New Jersey casino industry free from organized crime. The DGE conducts all licensing investigations.  
  Division of Gaming Enforcement's Licensing Forms  

The Service Industry Licensing Bureau (SILB) assures the integrity of those persons and enterprises that provide goods or services to, or for the benefit of, the casino/hotel industry. Through its legal and investigative staff, members of the Service Industry Licensing Bureau register or investigate each person or enterprise that provides goods or services to a casino or applies for licensure as a casino service industry enterprise (CSIE) for compliance with the standards of honesty, good character and integrity required by the Casino Control Act (Act).

Pursuant to Section 92 of the Act, Enterprises must be either be licensed by the Division or vendor registered depending on the nature of business transacted with the casino industry. CSIE’s are categorized three ways under the Act: Section 92a(1) & (2) covers the gaming-related CSIE’s, Section 92a(3) Ancillary CSIE’s and Section 92c(1) vendor registrants.

The first category 92a(1)&(2) gaming CSIE’s are those entities which supply goods and services directly related to the operation of the casino such as gaming equipment, simulcast wagering equipment, or slot machine distributors. Providers of Internet Gaming to the casinos are also included in this category. The second category, 92a(3) Ancillary CSIE’s are those enterprises that provide goods or services ancillary to gaming activity. Examples of this category include, but are not limited to, junket enterprises and their junket representatives, licensors of authorized games, non-casino CHAB operators and lessors of casino property not required to hold a casino license. Finally, 92c(1) vendor registrants. This class covers all the other “non-gaming-related” and “non-ancillary-related” service industries that supply the other goods or services related to the operation of the hotels and casinos, but which do not impact game play, such as construction companies(and their sub-contractors), on-premise shopkeepers, trash haulers, limousine services or food purveyors. Finally, union registrants are required to register with the Division Bi-annually and are also investigated by SILB.
