Licensee obligations brochures

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation has released a range of obligations brochures to help licensees understand their liquor licence and associated responsibilities.

Victoria boasts a vibrant hospitality and tourism industry with a culture of appreciating fine food and entertainment. The sale and enjoyment of alcohol is part of this.

But holding a liquor licence is a privilege, not a right, and selling alcohol comes with very real and serious obligations. As a result, the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation has released a range of obligations brochures to help licensees understand their liquor licence and associated responsibilities.

Each brochure is tailored to a specific licence and provides information about the following:

  • Responsible Service of Alcohol
  • fire safety
  • required signage
  • impact on the surrounding area
  • specific conditions on your licence
  • administration and record keeping
  • Compliance and Audit.
