German term or phrase: Wirteprüfungskommission
From a licence to manage a 'Wirtschaft mit Alkoholausschank' in the Swiss Canton of Lucerne.

Is this a publican's examination committee or a landlord's examination committee or something else?

licensing commission
Explanation:
or licensing authority

is what grants licenses carries out inspections to check whether establishments comply with their conditions.
Wouldn't worry too much about a literal translation, since the Swiss system won't match the one of another country anyway.
IMO this gets across what's needed quite adequately
