The MJBF Sub-Committee

To streamline the application process for business entities, in January 2012, we established a Multi-Jurisdictional Business Form (MJBF) Sub-Committee to develop a form which would standardise the categorisation of information to be provided by business entities.

  • Jerry See  (Chief Executive, Casino Regulatory Authority of Singapore)
  • Alistair Quigley (Programme Director, Great Britain Gambling Commission)
  • Audrey Robinson (General Counsel, Casino Gaming Commission, Jamaica)
  • Cleveland Allen (Commission Secretary/Legal Officer, Casino Gaming Commission, Jamaica)
  • David Rebuck (Director, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, United States of America)
  • Shawn Reid (Member, Nevada State Gaming Control Board, United States of America)

With the MJBF, business entities only need to complete a single form (with relevant riders that are specific to particular jurisdictions) for submission to IAGR member jurisdictions that accept the MJBF. The MJBF (Phase 1) was introduced to IAGR members during the IAGR 2012 Conference in Singapore and underwent a one-year pilot trial ending 31 May 2014. After incorporating a good spread of views and feedbacks from multiple member jurisdictions the revised MJBF version 1.2 is now available for use.

For more information or to provide any feedback, please contact us.

Benefits of the MJBF

  • Ease of use
  • Usable across multiple jurisdictions as consensus was achieved among multiple member jurisdictions
  • Free to use by member jurisdictions
  • Secured through password protection
  • Built-in validation mechanisms
  • Flexibility as jurisdiction has the option to have their own rider form for questions unique to them
  • Able to extract information from the MJBF to eXtensible Markup Language data format ("XML") for further processing in jurisdictions’ licensing system using the built-in native XML extraction feature. A user guide together with the MJBF data dictionary are available to provide a step-by-step guide to assist member jurisdictions in the implementation of IT system to support XML data exchange with overseas counterparts such as email exchange and server-to-server file transfer. Member jurisdictions may click here to drop us an email to request for a copy. Kindly note that only member jurisdictions would receive a copy.

Regulator's backend system

The regulator extracts the information from the MJBF

Information can be extracted via native XML export feature in the MJBF

The regulator can customise a program to import the XML data file directly into their databases

 

Extract Information from the MJBF to XML

  • The MJBF performs validation and completeness checks before an Export feature is enabled
  • Upon successful validation and completeness check, the form status is reflected as 'Completed – Ready For Submission'.

                        

  • The 'Export Form Data' button is then enabled, and the Gaming Regulator (GR) user is prompted to save the XML file to the local computer.

                     

  • The user could then use the saved XML file to load the MJBF data into their respective systems/database.
