The Improvement Service in Scotland has put out to tender a new National Personal License Database, which will cover the sale of alcohol.
Tenders are being invited for the provision of a personal license database, with an option to extend that system into a national licensing system.
Changes to the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005, coupled with a desire to develop a shared and managed service approach to public services, are the driving forces for the new database, said the Improvement Service, which serves Scottish public sector bodies.
The new database will cover details of newly distributed personal licences that authorise named persons to operate and manage licensed premises and to sell alcohol.
More details on the database are available from the Improvement Service's website.
