Are your assessment and plan up to date?

The General Code of Practice under the Liquor Licensing Act 1997 requires that licensees undertake a risk assessment of the operational practices associated with licensed premises and put in place practices/measures to manage these risks through a documented management plan.

All staff must be trained in the management plan, including new staff when joining. Refresher training also needs to be provided for all staff every two years.

The risk assessment and management plan must respond promptly to any operational changes, and needs to be reviewed and updated at least every two years.
