ID scanning in licensed venues

Licensees in safe night precincts (SNPs) who trade past midnight on a permanent basis must operate an approved ID scanner at each entry to their licensed premises (unless exempt).

In this guide you will learn about your ID scanning obligations, including:

  • which liquor licence classes are exempt
  • whose ID to scan and when to do it
  • who is allowed to scan ID
  • acceptable forms of ID
  • personal information and privacy obligations
  • how to deal with privacy complaints
  • how to deal with banning orders and positive results
  • what to do if the ID scanning system malfunctions
  • setting up your networked ID scanner with an approved operator
  • re-entry pass systems.
