30 Sep What Documents Can Be Requested By The Inspectors Of The Western Cape Liquor Authority
It is important to note what documentation you need to have on hand in the event of a surprise visit from an inspector of the Western Cape Liquor Authority… As failure to produce all of the required documentation will result in compliance notices being issued to the holder.
That being said, we recommend all current and potential licence holders familiarise themselves with the list below:
1. Original issued liquor license with conditions – either a Form 4 or a Form 11
2. Renewal Notice (Form 23), together with the proof of payment of the renewal fee as well as the Renewal Certificate (stating that the liquor license is valid for the applicable year)
3. A copy of the Form 17 must be displayed – the form that is submitted to the Liquor Authority to appoint a manager where the holder of the liquor license is a legal entity
4. The restricted area (if applicable to the premises) must be clearly marked in accordance with Regulation 24 of the Act – a notice must be placed indicating the restricted area in bold-faced, upper case letters at least 5cm in height and in black lettering not less than 0.5cm wide
5. The name of the premises, type of liquor license, trading hours and licence number must be displayed on the front door or window of the licensed premises, in characters not less than 5cm in height as in accordance with Regulation 37(1) of the Act
It’s also important to note that certain municipalities may require further additional documentation to be on the licensed premises, which does not form part of the abovementioned list.
