What is Licensing SAVI?
Licensing Security and Vulnerability Initiative (Licensing SAVI) is a self-assessment tool designed to help licensed premises provide a safer and more secure environment for their managers, staff, customers and local communities.
Licensing SAVI ensures licensed premises are aware of and meet the standards required by responsible authorities in England and Wales. It was developed at the request of the Home Office and is backed by the National Police Chiefs’ Council.
Licensing SAVI provides advice and guidance for venues to help raise standards and provide a safe, secure and welcoming environment.
