A premises licence gives permission for a building or part of a building to be used for gambling activities. Particular conditions may be attached to a premises licence, for instance opening hours and security measures.

The Gambling Commission is responsible for issuing personal licences and operating licences.

A revised Statement of Licensing Principles with regard to the Gambling Act 2005 was published and came into effect on 1 January 2016. This will remain in effect for three years.
