Every mobile disco operator or hirer is required by law to have
adequate public liability insurance cover. Safety certificates.
Due to their own business insurance cover policy limitations, it is becoming
standard practice by many public and private venue owners to request that all
providers of entertainment including disco and karaoke operators that all their
electrical equipment has a P.A.T (Portable Appliance Test) certificate.
Other information to be aware of.
The ProDub Licence
allows an individual to copy music they own onto various formats and devices, such as from their CDs to their laptop, for the purpose of using that device or format to undertake professional or semi-professional performances, such as those undertaken by DJs, karaoke jockeys, fitness instructors, performers etc.
Organisers and venue owners may wish to ask for evidence of a ProDub Licence
however caution should be used as individuals who use vinyl or CDs and who have not made copies will NOT require the ProDub Licence.
