Signs for your business

All businesses licensed to sell liquor or manage gaming and gaming machines are required to display mandatory signage.

Changes have been made to liquor and gaming signage to increase flexibility, reduce costs and wait times for licensees, and better assist in minimising harm.

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.

Transition period for new signage

There is a six-month transition period, from 18 January – 18 July 2021, where venues can display:

  • new signage; or
  • signage that complied with the requirements under the Liquor Act 2008 and other relevant legislation before 18 January 2020.

All venues must display the new designs, and remove old designs, by 19 July 2021.
