This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 8 January 2015, amend the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Regulations 2013 (the principal regulations) by replacing regulation 23 of the principal regulations. The purpose of these regulations is to clarify what are the prescribed qualifications that a person must have in order to qualify for a manager’s certificate under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 (the new Act). A prescribed qualification is a qualification relating to the management of licensed premises, awarded by a recognised industry training organisation to a person who has successfully completed a version of the 2 relevant New Zealand Qualifications Authority unit standards that is based on the new Act. For a transitional period ending on 1 January 2016, a person qualifies for a manager’s certificate if the person has successfully completed a bridging course based on the new Act and either the person holds a Licence Controller Qualification awarded under regulation 21AAC of the (now revoked) Sale of Liquor Regulations 1990 or has successfully completed a now superseded version of the 2 relevant New Zealand Qualifications Authority unit standards based on the (now repealed) Sale of Liquor Act 1989.
Date of notification in Gazette: 4 December 2014.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
