Body of persons approvals (BOPAs)

Departmental advice on body of persons approvals for child performers.



This departmental advice is for:

  • local authorities
  • amateur performance groups

It aims to help local authorities and amateur groups to make greater use of body of persons (BOP) approvals.

A BOP approval means an organisation doesn’t need to obtain individual licences for the children who are participating in a performance.
