Club certificates

Picture of empty alcohol bottles A club premises certificate authorises a members' club to carry out licensable activities (supply of alcohol, regulated entertainment) for it's members. There is no requirement for a designated premises supervisor.

A club premises certificate is only for use by qualifying clubs. A number of criteria must be met to be considered a qualifying club. These include:

  • persons may not be admitted to membership to any of the privileges of membership without an interval of at least two days between their nomination for membership and their admission
  • that the club is established and conducted in good faith as a club
  • that the club has at least 25 members
  • that alcohol is not supplied to members on the premises otherwise than by or on behalf of the club

If a club wishes to provide licensable activities to the general public, it will have to apply for a premises licence or a temporary event notice.
