Club Premises Certificate

To authorise the supply of alcohol and regulated entertainment in a qualifying club you need a club premises certificate. In order to constitute a qualifying club you must also satisfy the various requirements set out in the Licensing Act 2003.

Clubs must be qualifying clubs and must satisfy the following general conditions:

  • a person may not be given memberships or, as a candidate for membership, any membership privileges without an interval of at least two days from their membership application or nomination and their membership being granted
  • that club rules state that those becoming member without nomination or application cannot have membership privileges for at least two days between them becoming members and being admitted to the club
  • that the club is established and conducted in good faith
  • that the club has at least 25 members
  • that alcohol is only supplied to members on the premises on behalf or by the club

Additional conditions in relation to the supply of alcohol must be complied with.

  • that alcohol purchased for and supplied by the club is done by members of club who are over 18 years of age and are elected to do so by the members
  • that no person at the expense of the club receives any commission, percentage or other similar payment in regard to the purchase of alcohol by the club
  • that there are no arrangements for anyone to receive a financial benefit from supplying alcohol, apart from any benefit to the club or to any person indirectly from the supply giving a gain from running the club

 

A club can apply for a club premises certificate for any premises which are occupied and used regularly for club purposes. Applications should be submitted with a plan of the premises which must be in a specific format, a copy of the rules of the club and a club operating schedule.

A club operating schedule is a document which must be in a specific format and which includes information on:

  • the activities of the club
  • the times the activities are to take place
  • other opening times
  • if alcohol supplies are for consumption on or off the premises or both
  • the steps that the club propose to take to promote the licensing objectives
  • any other information that is required

If there are any alterations to the rules or name of the club before an application is determined or after a certificate is issued, the club secretary must give us full details. If a certificate is in place, this must be sent when you notify us.

If a certificate is in place and the registered address of the club changes, the club must notify us of the change and provide the certificate with the notice.

A club may apply to vary a certificate. The certificate should accompany the application.

We may inspect the premises before an application is considered.
