Standards and guidance

We have created separate documents that provide additional guidance for our licensing Standards for Codes B, C, D and E.

The purpose of these guidance documents is to assist licensed establishments to meet the HTA’s licensing requirements. The documents contain additional information and examples of how to meet certain Standards. These documents will be reviewed regularly to include additional guidance. In reviewing these documents, we will take into consideration enquiries, inspection findings and additional examples of good practice.
