Changes will be made to liquor and gaming signage to increase flexibility, reduce costs and wait times for licensees, and better assist to minimise harm. The changes will take effect from 18 January 2021.
The new liquor signage meets Australian Standards in relation to colour and pictograms, are visually appealing, and easy to understand. New gaming signage has been developed using research and independently tested for effectiveness in reducing gambling harm.
There are no changes to the number of liquor signs, and minimal changes to the number of gaming signage and information resources.
