Inspections of licensed premises
We regularly carry out night time inspections to check that premises are safe and that escape routes are fit for use at all times.
Licensed premises include:
- public houses (Pubs)
- tourist accommodation
Apply for an inspection
If you apply for a liquor licence, you'll need an inspection and report by the Fire and Rescue Service under the Licensing (Jersey) Law 1974.
You'll need to apply for your inspection at least 10 working days before the Parish Assembly at which your application for a liquor licence will be considered. The fee for the
inspection and report is detailed in Item 12 of the Home Affairs (Fire and Rescue and Petroleum) (2022 Fees) (Jersey) Order 2021
Requirements for holding a public entertainment event
If you plan to hold an event, you need to apply for a permit from the Bailiff of Jersey.
One of the conditions of the permit is that all reasonable fire and safety precautions are made and maintained according to Fire and Rescue Service regulations.
We'll carry inspections during performances to check on fire safety measures. This includes checking that adequate escape routes are provided and secure at all times.
