Guidance Summaries

The Guidance Summaries provide concise overviews of the key licensing requirements and standards for the various license types issued by the GSC.

Each summary presents the most essential details in a standardised table format for simple accessibility and comparison between license categories.

The summaries extract and present the most relevant information from the full guidance documents in an easy-to-digest format. Users can quickly reference details such as activities, facility requirements, fees and general obligations for each license.

The summaries are not intended to replace comprehensive guidance documents, which contain all rules, conditions and administrative processes in detail. However, they provide a high-level introduction to help new applicants and existing licensees, as well as prospective applicants, understand the basic licensing framework at a glance. Users can then refer to the full guidance documentation for in-depth information.
