In April 2016, the Honourable Yvette D’Ath MP Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills held a round table consultation with industry and other stakeholders to assess if introducing networked ID scanners was practical for industry and beneficial in minimising alcohol-related harm.
This included deciding if networked ID scanning was an appropriate and cost-effective way to support the enforcement of patron bans.
The outcomes of this consultation process are still under consideration and the Attorney-General has stated that while the ID scanning legislation commences on 6 September 2016, licensees' obligations under the provisions will not be enforced before 1 February 2017.
Further information will be provided as it becomes available
