Revised Guidance issued under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 - March 2010.
The s.182 Guidance has been revised to take account of:
The new mandatory conditions commencing on 6 April, which impose a duty on those who manage licensed premises and clubs to prohibit irresponsible promotions and prohibit one person from dispensing alcohol directly into the mouth of another; they also require those who manage licensed premises and clubs to provide free tap water to customers on request.
Please note that mandatory conditions relating to age verification and smaller measures will commence in October 2010 and guidance will be published at this time. For further information on the new mandatory conditions please also refer to Home Office guidance.
The revision to the Guidance was laid before Parliament on 29 March 2010 and comes into force immediately.
