KW&SC officials have emphasized strict adherence to these deadlines, stating that applications received after the cutoff dates will not be considered. KW&SC reaffirmed its commitment to transparency and compliance with regulations, vowing not to issue licenses to any entity with a history of legal infractions.

Following a public notice issued on June 27, 2024, KW&SC has already received 65 applications, including 7 in Category A, 57 in Category B, and 1 in Category C.
