Responsibilities of liquor licensees

Queensland liquor licensees have a range of responsibilities under their liquor licence and the Liquor Act 1992.

If they don't meet their licence conditions, they risk breaching legal obligations, which can result in fines or prosecution.

The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) regularly inspects licensed venues to ensure licensees are doing the right thing.

This guide will help you comply with the detailed legal requirements of your liquor licence (such as having approved managers onsite, staff training and displaying your liquor licence) and avoid common mistakes that could lead to breaching your obligations or risking the safety and security of your staff and patrons.

As well as this guide, you should read the laws applicable to your particular licence and venue, including the Liquor Act 1992 and Liquor Regulation 2002.
