Informal screening exercise
This informal screening exercise has been designed to assess whether an applicant requires a wildlife licence and will take you to the correct application form to be filled in.
Please note that this exercise has no legal standing and will not under any circumstances guarantee that we will issue a licence.
Where is the proposed activity going to take place?
- Other UK waters
- Above mean low water mark (these licences are administered by Natural England)
- Below mean low water mark (or mean high water mark for common and grey seals) and out to 12 nautical miles
- Between 12 and 200 nautical miles
- If you want to introduce non-native (new) species, you need the WL 6 application form.
