Under the Liquor Reform Act 1998, licensees are required to display certain signage around their premises.

Traditionally, the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) has printed and mailed copies of the relevant posters to all licensees.

To improve efficiency, these posters are now available on the VCGLR website for downloading. While the VCGLR will continue to provide mandatory signage for new licensees, it will no longer automatically mail out updated posters to licensees and permittees.

The updated posters will need to be printed and while the VCGLR recommends using a heavier duty paper for durability/longevity, this is not a legal requirement.

Failure to display an up-to-date is an offence and may result in enforcement action by the VCGLR or Victorian Police.

The following posters have been updated to reflect the doubling of fines applicable for various offences relating to the supply of liquor to minors.

• ‘Under 18? No Supply’
• ‘Under 18? No entry’
• ‘Do not attempt to buy liquor for under 18s’
• ‘Under 18? No supply (Party Bus)’

Mandatory posters are available for download from the VCGLR website
