Revised S.182 Guidance Issued

Revised S.182 Guidance Issued Following the coming into force of the Licensing Act 2003 (Mandatory Conditions) Order 2014, the Home Office has issued revised statutory guidance today.

According to the Home Office website, “…the guidance has been revised to provide licensing authorities with advice in relation to their exercise of these new functions; see especially the revision of Chapter 10 in connection with the modifications made by the Order to the mandatory licensing conditions. Chapter 16 (Early Morning Alcohol Restriction Orders (EMROs)) has been revised to give greater clarity to licensing authorities on the process for introducing an EMRO. Moreover, the guidance has been subject to a number of additional minor revisions to improve clarity in some areas.”

The amended guidance is in force from today (4 June 2014).
