Liquor Accords are local voluntary agreements between the liquor industry, the WA Police Force, local government authorities and the WA Department of Health.
Accords strive to exceed the standards of venue management and duty of care to patrons, as required by the Liquor Control Act.
Accords are run and monitored locally by those groups interested in the safe and professional management of licensed premises. The purpose of Liquor Accords is to help reduce the harm associated with the misuse of alcohol.
Accords can be approved by the licensing authority. Once approved the accord can request that the licensing authority impose, vary or cancel a condition of a licence.
