Part 6 – Personal Licences

Section 71 – Personal licence

147.This section provides for the new personal licence.  Each premises licence must name the “premises manager” for the premises.  The application for the licence will have to contain information as to the proposed premises manager. In terms of the mandatory conditions in schedule 3, the premises manager will have to hold a personal licence. Other personal licence holders could be employed on the premises to help the premises manager out. A personal licence permits that person to supervise and authorise sales of alcohol on the premises.
