Club Certificates

Members’ clubs require a club premises certificate if they want to carry out licensable activities for their members. This covers the supply of alcohol and regulated entertainment. There is no need for a designated premises supervisor.

A club premises certificate is only for use by qualifying clubs. The following criteria must be met to be considered a qualifying club:

  • 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 unless by or on behalf of the club

Clubs will need to apply for a premises licence or a temporary event notice if they're looking to provide activities for the general public.
