Written Risk Management Plan Requirements

The new code of Practice introduced in January 2013 in South Australia under the Liquor Licensing Act 1997 now requires all licensed premises to have a written risk management plan. The risk management plan is aimed at addressing the issues and new requirements implemented by this new Code of Practice.

There have been a number of key changes that have been enforced on licensees which has been introduced as part of the governments crack down on alcohol fuelled violence and disturbance. While this code has little effect on many licensed venues it still puts a burden on all venues to implement the new regulations as set out in the code.

One of the key changes is the need for all staff that serve alcohol to undertake a responsible service of alcohol course. This course can be done online through many providers and see also our link under “RSA”.

The government has been strictly enforcing the code of practice and in particular the need to have a risk management plan in place, handing out written warnings to non-complying venues. Here at Lion Liquor Licensing we are now introducing a new service to help clients create and implement custom Risk Management Plans that will meet the requirements set out under the new General Code of Practice.
