Class licences for wildlife management

Register to use a class licence for activities that need specific skill or experience to avoid risk to the conservation or welfare of a protected species.

If you plan to act under the authority of a class licence you:

  • must be registered to use most class licences
  • need to apply to be registered for each licence you use
  • remain eligible to use the licence(s) for as long as you remain registered
  • meet the recording and reporting requirement for each licence

You should use a general licence for activities that have a lower risk for conservation or the welfare of a protected species.

For further information see Wildlife licences: when you need to apply.
