The Legislation

136E Requirement to participate in precinct or community event liquor accord

(1) The Director-General may, in the case of licensed premises situated wholly or partly in the precinct to which a precinct liquor accord applies or in the area to which a community event liquor accord applies, impose conditions on the licence, by notice in writing to the licensee, requiring the licensee to participate in the liquor accord for that precinct or area.

(2) Without limiting subsection (1), if:
(a) the sale or supply of liquor after midnight on licensed premises is authorised at least once a week on a regular basis, and
(b) the licensed premises are situated wholly or partly in the precinct to which a precinct liquor accord applies or in the area to which a community event liquor accord applies, it is a condition of the licence that the licensee, on being notified in writing by the Director-General, participate in the liquor accord for that precinct or area.

(3) For the purposes of this section, “participate” in a liquor accord means participate in the development, implementation and operation of the accord and, without limitation, includes any of the following:
(a) developing the measures to be provided for by the accord,
(b) complying with those measures to the extent that they apply to the licensee,
(c) developing and maintaining the mechanisms and processes that support the operation of the accord,
(d) participating in any committee established under the accord.

(4) Subsection (2) does not, however, operate to require a licensee to participate in a committee established under a liquor accord.

(5) A reference in this section to a liquor accord includes a reference to a proposed liquor accord and a reference to the precinct or area to which a liquor accord applies includes a reference to the proposed precinct or area to which the accord is to apply.

(6) Subsection (2) does not apply in relation to a limited licence.
