3.       The Personal Licence holder must produce the paper Licence when required by an authorised officer of the Licensing Authority and it is an offence to fail to do so.

4.       The Personal Licence holder must inform the Licensing Authority in writing of any change of name or address as soon as it is reasonably practicable.

5.       A Personal Licence holder, when charged with a relevant offence, must inform the Magistrates Court and produce the Personal Licence to the Court.

6.       A Personal Licence holder who is convicted of a relevant offence or a foreign offence must as soon as practicable give the Licensing Authority a notice containing the nature and date of the conviction and any sentence imposed.

7.       The Personal Licence allows the holder to authorise other persons to sell alcohol in his/her presence with his/her authority.

8.       The Personal Licence allows the holder to authorise other persons associated with the premises to sell alcohol on his/her behalf.

Best Practise

Best Practise would be to produce an embossed letter of authority for any individual authorised by the Personal Licence holder to sell alcohol in his/her presence or on his/her behalf.

To endorse the letter to indicate the level of training the individual has received and to store the letters in an accessible and safe area in the service area(s) of the premises.
