What the law states:
Under the Licensing Act 2003, every premises licence in England and Wales must have a single Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS), named on the licence. This person MUST hold a valid personal licence. The DPS is the main point of contact for the police, licensing authority and all other responsible authorities.
Do you hold a personal licence?
To undertake training for the National Diploma for Designated Premises Supervisors (NDDPS Level 3) An individual MUST hold a personal licence or the APLH Level 2 qualification.
The National Diploma for Designated Premises Supervisors (NDDPS) is NOT a mandatory qualification to become a DPS. It is however a beneficial qualification for an individual responsible for running licensed premises. To become a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) in England and Wales a personal licence holder only needs to give written consent to be named on a premises licence as the main point of contact. The DPS is usually the Licensee, Manager or Supervisor in control of a licensed premise. Occasionally the Police or Licensing authority will insist the DPS holds the NDDPS Level 3 qualification.
