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.

However, non-exempt licensees located within safe night precincts who are permanently approved to trade liquor past 12 midnight are required to install a networked ID scanner by 1 July 2017. Networked ID scanners will be available through an approved operator. This system will support the enforcement of patron bans. Details on the operating requirements, when they will be available through a Queensland Government approved operator, and privacy obligations will be available in the near future.

For more information, read Use of ID scanners at licensed venues, which will be updated with information regularly.
