Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on the day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, amend the Sale of Liquor Regulations 1990 (the principal regulations).

The qualification prescribed by the principal regulations for the issue or renewal of a general manager’s certificate is the Licence Controller Qualification awarded by the Hospitality Standards Institute. As the Hospitality Standards Institute has merged with a new organisation, called the Service Skills Institute, the principal regulations need to be updated. Accordingly, these regulations amend the principal regulations to require the requisite qualification to be issued by the relevant industry training organisation.

Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 23 May 2013.

These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
