The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) is the independent statutory authority that regulates Victoria's gambling and liquor industries.
Our vision is that Victorians and visitors enjoy safe and responsible gambling and liquor environments.
The VCGLR regulates businesses focusing on the people, premises, products and promotions involved in supplying gambling and liquor to ensure the integrity of Victoria's gambling and liquor industries and to minimise harm. We work together with a diverse number of bodies and groups to achieve positive outcomes for the Victorian community.
The VCGLR is an amalgamation of two separate bodies, previously the Director of Liquor Licensing and Responsible Alcohol Victoria and the Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation. For an overview of what legislation and regulation the VCGLR administers, see our Laws and regulations page.
