Sports ground safety certificates
Sports stand safety certificate
If you operate a sports ground that is not designated as requiring a safety certificate, you will require a safety certificate for any stand that holds 500 or more spectators and is covered or partially covered.
A safety certificate may be either:
- a general safety certificate which covers the use of the stand for viewing an activity, or a number of activities, specified in the certificate for an indefinite period which starts on a specified date.
- a special safety certificate which covers the use of the stand for viewing a certain specified activity or activities on a certain specified occasion or occasions.
One certificate may cover more than one stand. You must comply with any conditions attached to a certificate.
The fee to certify a sports stand is £11,893 and the fee to change a safety certificate for a sports stand is £580.
Payments made by credit card are subject to a 2.25% charge.
