134 Terms of local liquor accords
(1) Without limiting the terms that may be included in a local liquor accord, an accord may make provision for or with respect to any one or more of the following:
(a) authorising or requiring any licensee who is a party to the accord:
(i) to cease to serve liquor (including take-away liquor) on the licensed premises, or
(ii) to restrict the public’s access to the licensed premises in a manner and to the extent provided by the accord, or both, from a time of day that is earlier than the time at which, as required by the relevant licence, trading must cease, (b) authorising or requiring any licensee who is a party to the accord:
(i) to restrict the use of glass containers, or
(ii) to maintain an incident register, or
(iii) to install and operate closed-circuit television or any other security device, or
(iv) to provide security staff, or
(v) to do any other thing that may be prescribed by the regulations in order to minimise alcohol-related harm.
(2) Entry by any person into a local liquor accord, and any conduct on the part of any person for the purpose of promoting or giving effect to the terms of a local liquor accord, are specifically authorised by this Act for the purposes of the Trade Practices Act 1974 of the Commonwealth and the Competition Code of New South Wales.
(3) Conduct authorised by subsection (2) is authorised only to the extent (if any) to which the conduct, so far as it consists of things done to regulate the supply of liquor or in some other respect, would otherwise contravene Part IV of the Trade Practices Act 1974 of the Commonwealth or the Competition Code of New South Wales.
