Designated Premises Supervisors - DPS Transfers

Every licensed premises must have a DPS who is going to be in day to day control of the premises.  

Under the Licensing Act 2003, a designated premises supervisor (DPS) or anyone authorising the supply of alcohol must be someone who holds a personal licence. If you sell alcohol without a DPS you commit an offence.  As such, it is important to complete any DPS Transfer forms without delay and to ensure that the correct person is designated.
