The consultation relates to the playing of recorded music at events such as discos and DJ nights and, in this instance, applies only to nightclubs, pubs and bars, cafes and restaurants, and hotels.

These are the primary venue types licensed under the SFE tariff. PPL will consider separately, in due course, how a revised SFE tariff might apply to other venues.

This consultation paper explains why PPL is reviewing its SFE tariff, and sets out PPL’s current thinking in relation to the following aspects of a potential new SFE tariff:
• Tariff Scope
• Tariff Structure 
• Fees 
• Implementation
