When copying the content on this page into your own document you'll need to insert certain details that are relevant for your licence. Where these are required the need for specific information is marked in brackets and leads with the word 'Insert' eg: [Insert: specific days and times]

  1. At all times that the premises are open to the public for licensable activities, all staff on-duty at the premises, including all door supervisors, and all on-duty managers must have completed Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) Awareness e-learning training. In addition, a minimum of 1 on-duty manager and any on-duty security supervisor/manager must also have attended a Counter Terrorism (CT) Awareness session delivered by Counter Terrorism Policing North West (CTPNW) trained personnel as soon as reasonably practicable. If not completed, they must have registered to attend a course and be able to provide evidence of this if requested by a police officer or authorised officer of the licensing authority. 
  2. The Designated Premises Supervisor must have attended a CT Awareness training session delivered by CTPNW-trained personnel as soon as is reasonably practicable. In all cases, within 28 days of a new Designated Premises Supervisor being named on the licence, they must have registered to attend a course and be able to provide evidence of this if requested by a police officer or authorised officer of Manchester City Council. 
  3. There must be a documented security assessment, which must incorporate counter terrorism measures for the premises. The assessment shall be routinely reviewed and must be reviewed following the elevation of the change of the national threat level. All reviews shall be documented. 
  4. Within 28 days of the grant or variation of the licence, the premises licence holder shall evaluate any risks identified through the security assessment and take prompt steps to eliminate them or to reduce the risk as far as is reasonably practicable. A documented record must be maintained of any remedial action implemented and made available upon request to any police officer or an authorised officer of Manchester City Council. 
  5. The premises must have a documented security plan, which sets out counter measures to be implemented in response to a terrorist attack that incorporates the principles of ‘Guide’, Shelter’ and ‘Communicate’ as appropriate in conjunction with relevant National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NACTSO) / Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) guidance, and the purposes of those procedures and the necessity of following them must be understood by those carrying them out:
    • Guide – Direct people towards the most appropriate location (invacuation, evacuation, hide) 
    • Shelter – Understand how your place or space might be able to lock-down and shelter people within it for several hours 
    • Communicate – Have a means of communicating effectively and promptly with users of your place and have staff capable of giving clear instructions. Also have the capability of integrating with any response or rescue operation by providing things like building plans.
