Title
UK Health Forum response to Home Office Community and Ancillary Sellers Notice consultation
Date12 December 2014
Year 2014
Summary
The UKHF welcomes the opportunity to comment on proposals to inform the development of the Community and Ancillary Sellers Notice. We hope that the guidelines and regulations issued by the Government after the consultation will give clarification on various issues, including fundamental questions over which businesses will be eligible to apply for the CAN, how the policy will be effectively policed and if companies and organisations selling alcohol under a CAN will be expected to join safety initiatives such as Purple Flag schemes and offer training in responsible retailing to their staff. 
The AHA has previously highlighted serious concerns about this piece of legislation and we would recommend referencing their response to this consultation, Alcohol Health Alliance UK response to the Home Office’s consultation on the Community and Ancillary Sellers Notice, for further examination of these concerns.
