What role does the Licensing Committee play?

30 Jun 14

The decision as to whether an application for Licence, Permit, or Registration is granted or refused rests with BHA.  However, applications may be referred to the Licensing Committee for consideration, in accordance with Schedule (A)9 of the Rules of Racing.  Examples of such cases include applicants who have been refused, but have asked for the Committee for a review of BHA’s decision, or applicants whom BHA has suitability concerns regarding.
