By law, licensees and permittees may not supply liquor to a person they reasonably believe to be in a state of intoxication. In addition, licensed premises that offer gaming in their venue may not knowingly allow a person who is intoxicated to gamble. Significant penalties for both offences apply.
The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation’s Annual Report 2014–15 has been tabled in Parliament.
Under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998, licensees are required to display certain signage around their licensed premises. Current liquor signage is available on our website for you to download, print and display in your premises.
From 1 July 2015, suppliers of wholesale liquor need to collect transaction data. Find out what information you need to record and report.
