A person named on a licence as the DPS must inform the licensing authority if he/she wishes to be removed as the DPS.
Within 48 hours of the Notice being given to the licensing authority, the individual must give the Premises Licence Holder
- a copy of the Notice sent to the licensing authority, and
- a Notice directing the Licence Holder to send to the licensing authority within 14 days, the Premises Licence or, if that is not practicable, a statement of the reasons for the failure to provide the licence.
If the Premises Licence Holder fails to comply with the direction he/she will commit an offence.
