Compliance information and advice

This Licensing Authority has produced a number of forms/posters that maybe of interest and use to those who are involved with operating premises licensed under the Licensing Act 2003.

Premises Licence - Age Verification Policy - At all premises licensed to sell alcohol, the Premises Licence holder is required to have in place an age verification policy. This Licensing Authority strongly recommends that such a policy is written.  Displaying an awareness poster can also assist with reminding customers and staff of the age verification policy adopted by the premises.

Authorisation to Sell Alcohol - Every sale of alcohol that takes place in a premises that has the benefit of a Premises Licence, has to be made or authorised by a person who holds a Personal Licence. This Licensing Authority strongly recommends that those persons authorised to make such sales are given written authorisation.

Refusal Log Sheet - It is extremely useful to record occasions when sales of age restricted products have been refused. Such records may assist with a defence of due diligence in the event of an offence being committed.

Proxy Sales Poster - A person commits an offence if they buy or attempt to buy alcohol on behalf of an individual aged under 18. This practice is commonly referred to as a 'proxy' sale. To prevent such sales taking place, a poster has been produced and this is available in English, Polish and Portuguese.
