Consultation on Secondary Legislation and Codes of Practice under The Liquor Licensing and Public Entertainments Act 2021

Closes 4 Sep 2022

Opened 27 Jul 2022


The Department of Home Affairs is undertaking public consultation on the proposed Regulations made under the Liquor Licensing and Public Entertainments Act 2021 and associated Codes of Practice.

These proposed Regulations, intended to come into operation by 1 November 2022, will meet a statutory commitment within section 12 of the Liquor Licensing and Public Entertainments Act 2021.

The consultation document sets out a brief overview of each Part of the Regulations, highlights any key issues, and the proposals for consideration. To ensure that the consultation content is accessible, detail around the proposals has been highlighted wherever possible.

Why your views matter

We want your input on these important pieces of secondary legislation and codes of practice, so that we can understand the views of individuals, businesses, key stakeholders and all interested parties. We are committed to open public consultation, and any proposed changes will only be made following careful and considered engagement with key stakeholders and interested parties.

We would encourage consultees to carefully read the Regulations and make any comments or suggestions within the consultation response questionnaire. Additional space is contained within the questionnaire to provide a section in which consultees can make general comments which do not directly correspond to the highlighted Parts of the Regulations.

We will review results from the consultation which will be used to inform the final version of the Regulations and Code of Practice.
