    Optional signage for licensed premises

    The following signage is optional for liquor licensees. Download your signage by clicking on the images below or if you wish to download all signs you can via the - Optional signage pack (PDF, 4.48 MB).

    The VCGLR will also mail out copies of this poster upon request.

    Signage image Purpose of sign

    This poster explains the consequences of being served a 'barring order' by licensees, responsible persons or Victoria Police.

    Barring orders can be served on drunk, violent or quarrelsome patrons.

    Once a person is served with a barring order, they must leave the venue and its vicinity immediately and cannot return until the barring order expires. If a person does not comply with the barring order, Victoria Police may issue them with an on-the-spot fine.

    This poster is voluntary for licensees to display on their licensed premises.

    This poster advises patrons that the venue provides free water. Offering free water is an important part of the responsible service of alcohol as it helps patrons slow down their rate of intoxication and provide an alternative to consuming alcohol.

    Licensed venues that supply alcohol for consumption on-site are required to provide free drinking water to their patrons.

    If you would like a copy for digital displays, download the high resolution version.

    This is a voluntary poster, designed to remind staff about RSA obligations and techniques of how to refuse service. We encourage you to display this poster in your staff room, kitchen or training room where it is visible to staff. You are not legally required to display this poster.

    This is a voluntary poster designed to assist you to manage alcohol in your venue or at your club, by educating your patrons on where they may or may not consume alcohol. You are not legally required to display this poster.

    This is a voluntary poster designed to assist club licensees to remind guests to sign in to ensure your sign-in requirements are met. You are not legally required to display this poster.

    We encourage you to display this poster in your club once you have completed the Start of Season Self -Audit (PDF, 208.48 KB).

    This is a voluntary poster, designed for clubs. You are not legally required to display it.

    Frequently asked questions

    The following aim to assist licensees with any queries they may have regarding their mandatory signage requirements.

    What signs have changed?

    The following posters have been updated to reflect the doubling of fines applicable for various offences relating to the supply of liquor to minors:

    • "Under 18? No Supply"
    • "Under 18? Can you enter?"
    • "Do not attempt to buy liquor for under 18s"
    • "Under 18? No supply (Party Bus)"
    • "Unruly behaviour" (Party Bus).
    How do I know if I have the correct version of a sign?

    Check the keycode (located in the bottom left hand corner of the poster) against the keycode on the VCGLR website to ensure you are using the current version.

    What is the penalty for not displaying the correct liquor signage?

    Licensees must display any notice (signage or posters) that the Commission requires to be displayed on the licensed premises.

    A list of posters currently required to be displayed on licensed premises can be found above. Licensees are encouraged to regularly check the website to ensure that they are displaying the most up-to-date posters and meeting their regulatory requirements.

    The maximum penalty for non-display of signs exceeds $738 under section 102 of the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998.

    Why have signage?

    Signs are useful for notifying staff and patrons of their legal requirements and the fines for breaking liquor laws.

    We encourage you to use the signage provided to tell your patrons what you expect of them while at your licensed premises. You can also clearly convey to patrons and staff that you support your staff in refusing service; and your staff can point out these signs when enforcing responsible service of alcohol laws.
