‘The Home Office has issued specific guidance on the Licensing Act 2003 (Mandatory Licensing Conditions) (Amendment) Order 2014 which comes into effect on 1st October 2014.
The Guidance titled ‘Guidance on Mandatory Licensing Conditions: For suppliers of alcohol and enforcement authorities in England and Wales’ has been issued in advance of the Order coming into effect with the intention of providing clarification as to the conditions.
As mentioned in our previous eNews, the Order amends the current mandatory conditions created in 2010. The Guidance states the intention of the Order is to ‘tighten the existing mandatory licensing conditions relating to irresponsible promotions, the provision of free water, the adoption and application of age verification policies and the provision of small measures at licensed premises.’
The Guidance is split into four sections dealing with each of the conditions: Irresponsible Promotions, Potable Water, Age Verification and Small Measures.
