Licensing Act guidance from the WSTA

Published:  23 July, 2008

In an effort to help licensees who are confused about the new Licensing Act, the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA) has developed a 12-point guide setting out who needs a licence, what kind of licence they need and how they can apply for it.

It is also offering a telephone helpline service for any licensee with questions or problems. In addition, it will shortly be putting a new section on its website (, which gives details of each local authority's licensing policy.

There will also be an online feedback form for licensees to use to alert the WSTA about bad practice or inconsistent interpretation of the legislation by licensing authorities.
