Mandatory Licensing Conditions

The Licensing Act 2003 (Mandatory Licensing Conditions) (Amendment) Order 2014 amended some of the mandatory conditions applied to all relevant premises licences and club premises certificates which authorise the supply of alcohol for consumption on and off, or, just off, the premises.

What does this order mean?

The order tightens the relevant existing mandatory licensing conditions relating to irresponsible promotions, alcohol directly by one person into the mouth of another the provision of free water, the adoption and application of age verification policies and the provision of small measures at relevant licensed premises.

This order removes the exception for table meals from the prohibition on irresponsible promotions relating to the provision of unlimited or unspecified quantities of alcohol for free or for a discount.

However, this will not apply to an activity falling within the existing table meal exception that is available to an individual who holds a ticket or other written invitation in respect of that activity which was purchased by, or given to, that individual on or before 30 September 2014, and the activity takes place on or before 5 April 2015.

Will my licence be amended?

The Licensing Authority is unable to amend all relevant licences to reflect the changes at this time, however we will amend the licences when any changes are made to the licence.
