Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Schedule 3 to the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 (“the Act”) lists mandatory conditions which must be imposed by a Licensing Board on the granting of a premises licence. These Regulations amend that schedule in two respects.

Regulation 2 amends paragraph 6 of schedule 3. That paragraph imposes a training requirement on those working in licensed premises selling or serving alcohol. Paragraph 6 is amended so as to require a training record in respect of a relevant staff member to be kept on the premises whilst that person is working there. The form of record is set out in the Schedule to these Regulations.

Regulation 3 inserts a new paragraph 13 into schedule 3 to the Act. This paragraph imposes restrictions on the areas within premises in which alcohol for consumption off the premises may be displayed.
