The Victorian Government is reviewing the current Liquor Control Reform Regulations 2009. The current Liquor Control Reform Regulations 2009 have been extended for 12 months and are due to expire on 4 November 2020.

The review will focus only on matters that may be prescribed in regulations as outlined in section 118B, section 180 and Schedule 3, clause 17 (2)(e) of the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998.

Before remaking regulations, the responsible minister, the Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, is required to ensure that consultation occurs with affected parties, and that the impacts of the regulations on individuals or groups are adequately assessed.

Initial consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who provided a submission.

This page will be updated as the sunset review progresses.
