(c) The manager appointed by a licensee must be a serious person. The licensee shall communicate in writing to the board of directors the name and address of the manager as well as the date and place of birth. In the event of a change of manager, the licensee must inform the board of directors in writing within 15 days of the change and provide complete information to the new person appointed manager. The corresponding fees shall be attached to any notification of the appointment of a Director-General or to any notification of change of management. (b) A management contract must reserve to the licensee the ability to manage its own operations. (d) A management contract may not grant an interest rate to a management company. (a) The Board of Directors shall inform the licensee or applicant in writing of the decision of the Board of Directors to allow or refuse the participation of a person providing services as a management company. In recent years, the Board of Directors has encountered an increasing number of management contracts, i.e. agreements between a licensee and a management company, in order to operate, manage or supervise all or part of the operation of the approved premises. These agreements, which may involve complex commercial organisations, with the exchange of royalties and profits between the parties of the licensee and the management company, are expressly permitted by the regulations of the board of directors in paragraphs 3.141 (a) and sections 102 and 447 (g) of the Spirits Act (47 P. S. § 1-102 and 4-477 (g)). Section 102 of the Liquor Code defines a “collective society” as an entity that operates, manages or supervises all or part of a licensed business on behalf of a licensee.
However, Article 3.143(b)(2) currently excludes a management company from having a financial interest in the licensed business, although management companies are held to the same standards as a person participating in the license. In response to comments from the regulated community, the Commission considers that amendments are necessary to reflect the reality of the modern business environment in which licensees enter into negotiated management agreements that are not structured as a formal partnership or joint venture, but may include the allocation of profits and control. The Commission also considers that the proposed amendments will be more consistent with the legal definition of “collecting society” than with the rules. (2) Once every seven days for dosing pipes, valves, joints, clutches, fittings, washers, washers, rings, empty beer detectors (referred to as “FOBS”) and traction foam control units, unless the licensee has an ultrasonic system, electromagnetic or otherwise, which delays the growth of yeasts and bacteria present in dosing pipes. If such a system is installed and operated, the lessee must follow the system manufacturer`s cleaning frequency and cleaning method guidelines. (b) Sponsors shall dispose of all empty spirits containers referred to in Article 4-491(5) of the Spirit Drinks Code (47 P.P.) . . .
