Best Practice Premises Inspection Programme

Best Practice Premises Inspection Programme

What is the Best Practice Premises Inspection Programme?

This is a new programme from October 2019 that involves an on-site inspection of all licenced premises which will lead to premises being rated on their compliance, with the rating score being used to determine future inspection timeframes.

For those premises with a licence to sell alcohol after midnight the inspection will be used to determine whether a levy discount is possible. The same Inspection Document will be used for all premises and will be made accessible following the inspection.


The following resources support premises to comply with the programme:
