Lock out and ID scanning in safe night precincts

The proposed 1am lock out in safe night precincts from 1 July 2017 will not proceed.

Networked ID scanning requirements apply to non-exempt licensees located within safe night precincts who are permanently approved to sell alcohol past 12 midnight. These licensees are required to install a networked ID scanner by 1 July 2017.

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