Changes To Liquor Licensing Laws
The changes to liquor licensing laws that will take effect from 3 May 2010
will benefit producers and other licensees by reducing costs and red tape,
while still promoting responsible service and consumption of alcohol at
The laws provide more clarity around recognising an intoxicated person and
also introduce a new offence for members of the public seeking to purchase
alcohol on behalf of someone who is intoxicated. It is important to note
that there are no new offences for licensees, but the new laws will introduce
expiation fees for many existing offences.
This page includes important information to help you understand the changes
to the Liquor Licensing Act 1997 and to ensure that you are compliant when
the new laws commence.
