Time to Review Your Liquor Licensing Management Plan

Tuesday, Apr 9, 2019

It is a requirement that all holders of a liquor licence (licensee) completes a risk assessment and management plan to manage the risks associated with the sale or supply of alcohol. The management plan must be reviewed every 2 years, which for most wine producers will fall on 18 April 2019.

Following the enactment of the Liquor Licensing (Liquor Review) Amendment Act 2017, changes to the Liquor Licensing Act 1997 are progressively being implemented.

SAWIA has amended the risk assessment and management plan template tailored to the wine industry, incorporating the second phase of liquor licensing reforms. The updated templates can be accessed by members via the liquor licensing notice board

For any questions on the updated risk assessment and management plan templates, please contact Business and Workplace Adviser, Henrik Wallgren. 

SAWIA can also assist wine producers on a consultancy basis with undertaking the on-site risk assessment and develop a management plan which responds to the risks identified.
