Designated Premises Supervisor
Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) is the person identified on the Premises Licence as the person who supervises the premises. Any premises where alcohol is supplied under a Premises Licence must have a DPS. They will be named in the Premises Licence, a summary of which must be displayed on the premises.
The DPS will not necessarily be the Premises Licence holder, although this may sometimes be the case. They will be the points of contact for the premises at all times for licensing authorities, or the Police or Fire Services if problems occur at the premises.
Any application for a Premises Licence must also include a form of consent given by the individual whom the applicant wishes to have specified in the Premises Licence as the DPS.
The DPS must be the holder of a Personal Licence.
