NSW govt cracks down on online booze sales

por Pam Leon (2020-06-17)


The NSW government is cracking down on online alcohol sales with new obligations for same-day delivery to ensure minors and intoxicated people aren't getting booze. The proposed reforms will consider creating a range of new offences including supplying alcohol to intoxicated people, failing to verify the age of online customers and delivering outside bottle shop trading hours. NSW Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello said in 2017/18 online alcohol sales in Australia were worth about four per cent of total liquor sales and annual growth in online sales between 2018 and 2023 is expected to double.

"Online alcohol sales have grown significantly in recent years, in line with customer demand for other food and beverage delivery services," Mr Dominello said in a statement on Thursday. "COVID-19 restrictions on pubs and clubs have also boosted this segment of the market." The reforms will target the risks of express delivery including alcohol being delivered to minors and intoxicated people, with new obligations imposed for same-day delivery providers.

These obligations will ensure deliverers receive training in responsible delivery of alcohol. "For the first time, people selling alcohol for same-day delivery will have an explicit obligation to verify that the person placing the order is over 18 years," Mr Dominello said. "In a world where you can now get alcohol delivered to your door in under 30 minutes, we need to ensure best practice harm minimisation is adhered to in all circumstances." Liquor and Gaming has been working with the industry to enforce existing laws and ensure unlicensed providers can't post alcohol delivery services online.

The changes are part of the Berejiklian government's proposed 24-hour economic reforms which are open for public consultation. Advertisement
