Section 17: The person responsible
131.Section 17 repeals the definition of “nominal licensee” from the 1990 Act. The term “nominal licensee” is no longer used because it does not adequately reflect the responsibilities of a licence holder.
Text created by the government department responsible for the subject matter of the Act to explain what the Act sets out to achieve and to make the Act accessible to readers who are not legally qualified. Explanatory Notes were introduced in 1999 and accompany all Public Acts except Appropriation, Consolidated Fund, Finance and Consolidation Acts.
