Holding and Movement Alcohol Strategy - Unannounced Visits

Procedures and good practice: Do I need to prepare for an unannounced visit?

Yes. Prior to any unannounced visits you must ensure that CENTAUR checks are completed on all addresses that you intend to visit. This will highlight any traders who are under current investigation by other teams within the Department, or other aspects that could prevent you from visiting the trader.
