The Safe Night Out Legislation Amendment Bill 2014 was passed on 26 August 2014 by the Queensland Government. There have been quite a few amendments to the Liquor Act 1992, and this includes changes to the requirements for risk-assessed management plans (RAMPs).
Sometimes the Commissioner for Liquor and Gaming can now direct a licensee or permittee to amend their RAMP. The Commissioner will provide the licensee or permittee with a written notice that explains:
- the required changes to the RAMP
- the reasons for these changes
- when the amended plan must be provided to the Commissioner.
The licensee or permittee must comply with the direction, otherwise they commit an offence. The maximum penalty is 25 penalty units (monetary value of $2,846).
