About the review

Consultation on the review of the Northern Territory’s alcohol policies and legislation, including the Liquor Act has now closed.

The Independent Expert Advisory Panel, Chaired by Justice Trevor Riley, undertook wide public consultation on all aspects of the current alcohol policies and legislation together with the Liquor Act.
The overarching objective of the review is to provide recommendations to Government on evidence based best practice alcohol harm prevention and management initiatives; and a rigorous and contemporary regulatory framework to support Government to develop a whole-of-government integrated alcohol harm reduction framework.

The Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review will assist with developing an integrated Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy and will form an important part of the Northern Territory Government’s efforts to prevent and reduce the harms associated with alcohol misuse and improve the safety and wellbeing of Territorians.
