Licensing policy enforcement and regulations

Our job includes helping our customers achieve the standards needed to obtain the licence they are seeking.

We believe that carrying out our enforcement functions in a fair, consistent, independent and practical manner will help to promote a thriving local and national economy.

We are committed to these objectives in our approach to enforcement action, which is intended to:

  • Ensure that we enforce the law in a fair, equitable and consistent manner.
  • Assist businesses and others in meeting their legal obligations without unnecessary expense.
  • Focus on prevention rather than cure.
  • Take firm action against those who flout the law or act irresponsibly.
