Risk assessment and management plan
All liquor licence holders must have a management plan in place. You may be asked to provide this to a CBS officer at any time.
CBS has developed a risk assessment and management plan template to help licensees have a written plan in place. It's not mandatory to use this template - industry bodies can develop their own templates for their members, or licensees can choose to develop their own management plans.
Late night trading code of practice
The late night trading code of practice applies to venues that trade past 2.00 am and prohibits the entry or re-entry of patrons onto licensed premises after 3.00 am.
The late night code covers:
- drink marshals
- restrictions of the supply of beverages that promote rapid or excessive consumption
- restrictions on the use of glassware
- use of CCTV
- use of metal detectors.
