Alcohol may not be sold on any premises unless a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) is appointed. The sale of alcohol without the appointed DPS carries a maximum penalty on conviction of a Unlimited fine and / or 6 months imprisonment.

The Designated Premises Supervisor is responsible for the ‘day-to-day running of the premises’ and they are prescribed as the ‘single point of accountability’.

The Designated Premises Supervisor is responsible and legally accountable for the licensable activities taking place on that premises. This means that the DPS will often be liable for penalties and / or large fines for non-compliance or unauthorised licensable activities.

The DPS course is designed to provide learners with the skills and knowledge to carry out their responsibilities as a DPS in a professional manner and uphold the objectives outlined in the Licensing Act 2003.

There is no stipulation in the Licensing Act which determines how often a DPS should be present at their licensed premises over any specified period. However an increasing number of licensing authorities look unfavourably or will not accept, someone who is not intimately involved with the running of the licensed premises assuming the position of DPS.
