In order to avoid processing delays, liquor licence holders -
including those with music and dancing licenses – are
encouraged to apply for licence renewals early, in advance of the
renewal deadline on Friday, 19 August 2016.
Licensees are reminded that prior to this deadline, their
premises must be inspected by relevant Government agencies.
Depending on licensees' particular operations, these
inspections may include the Fire Service, Environmental Health,
Planning Department, and Port Authority. Reports from these
agencies should be submitted to the Liquor Licensing Board along
with renewal applications.
However, if the reports are unavailable by the deadline,
licensees must still submit their renewal applications to the board
by 19 August, along with proof that inspection requests were made,
said Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI) Senior Trade
Officer Gavin Dixon.
'The board considers an inspection to be valid for 12
months', said Mr Dixon, who also is the Board's Acting
'For example, if you have an inspection and are successfully
issued with a pass or certificate on 25 May 2016, it will be
considered valid until 25 May 2017. But, it should be noted that if
there have been any changes in the location or structure of the
premises since the inspection date, the validation of the initial
inspection will be considered void and the applicant will need to
request a new inspection'.
Completed renewal applications, and either inspection
certificates or proof of inspection requests, that are submitted by
19 August will be heard at the board's annual session on 30
September, Mr Dixon said.
The Liquor Licensing Board has mailed renewal applications to
each license holder. Copies are also available from the Business
Licensing Counter on the first floor of the Government
Administration Building, and on DCI's website,
