Lock out and ID scanning in safe night precincts

The proposed 1am lock out in safe night precincts has been cancelled. However, if your liquor licence has a condition imposing a lock out, you must comply with the conditions of your liquor licence.

Networked ID scanning requirements apply to non-exempt licensees located within safe night precincts who are permanently approved to sell alcohol past 12 midnight.

Networked ID scanners support the enforcement of patron bans and are available through approved operators.
