Security camera standards

The Liquor Control Reform Regulations 2009 impose minimum standards for the frame rate and quality of stored images for security cameras and video recorders.

The regulations affect any licensee with conditions endorsed on their liquor licence that require them to install and maintain a surveillance recording system. 

If surveillance recording system conditions are endorsed on a licence, the system must meet the minimum standards. The licensee is responsible for ensuring that the surveillance recording system operates in accordance with the regulations and the conditions of their licence.
