License checks in Corby

Security Industry Authority : 07 August, 2009  (Company News)
The SIA performed another successful audit last week, this time in Corby where only one incidence of unlicensed door staff was found
The Security Industry Authority, Northamptonshire Police, Corby Borough Council, and Trading Standards carried out random checks at Corby's pubs and bars on Friday 31st July to ensure licensees and door staff were adhering to licensing regulations.

As part of the multi-agency operation, the SIA inspected door staff to ensure they were wearing and displaying valid SIA licences. Only one individual was found in possession of an expired licence. Trading standards conducted alcohol tests; the council checked venues were adhering to licensing conditions and the police looked at various issues including health and safety.

Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Pat Fawcett said: "Corby Borough Council prides itself on working closely with its partner agencies on initiatives such as this and we are very pleased that it has highlighted that the majority of door staff and premises within the Borough are complying to licensing regulations.

'We look forward to continuing to work with our partners to ensure businesses and individuals alike continue to comply and will take action where appropriate."

Nigel Davies, an SIA Head of Investigation said: "Whilst I am pleased that the majority of door staff were working legally, I must remind all door staff that you must apply to renew your licence in good time as it is illegal to work without a valid SIA licence and if caught, you may face prosecution.

"The Licensing Act 2003 stipulates that where door supervisors are used by premises, those individuals must be SIA licensed and if not, that venue is in breach of their premises licence. Therefore, I also urge licensees to ensure that they are operating within the law when employing door supervisors for their own and the public's benefit."
