Operating licence applications
Operating licence applications can be complex and take time to assess and process. This can take up to 6 months and in some cases longer.
We require all applications to be fully complete, with all required documents and with the required fees to be paid when the application is submitted.
We will not start processing any application unless the fee has been paid and the application is complete. We may also reject your application.
You will need to pay an application fee when you submit your application, this can be paid by credit or debit card online.
The fee you need to pay depends on what licence and activities you are applying to be licensed for.
You can calculate your application fees using our fees calculator (opens in new tab).
