Liquor Licensing Reform Briefing

More changes to liquor licensing laws in November

New liquor licensing categories, a new short-term liquor licence and penalties of up to $10,000 for failing to undertake a risk assessment and develop a management plan are just some of the important changes to South Australia’s liquor licensing laws that take effect in November this year.

These changes build on other key reforms that have occurred already in 2017 and 2018 and impact most businesses within the wine industry.

To support producers in managing these changes, in addition to existing liquor licensing obligations and opportunities, SAWIA has organised to run regional briefings in October and November 2019.

Key areas that we will cover include:

1. New licence categories relevant to the wine industry.

2. Fee structure of licences and fee minimisation opportunities.

3. How to make changes to a licence.

4. Core licensee requirements:

     - Direct sales and delivery (eg online and phone sales).   

    - Junior workers and serving to minors prevention measures.   

    - Responsible person obligations.     

    - Responsible service of alcohol qualification and extent of

      recognition nationally.

5. Risk assessment and management plan requirements and recommendations.

This session is a great opportunity to come and understand what has changed, as well as what your business is required to be doing right now.
