What are the responsibilities of the approved manager?
An approved manager must sign a register at the start of each shift they are on duty, recording their name, the date and starting time of their shift. At the end of their rostered shift the approved manager must sign the register and record the date and finishing time of their shift.
By signing the register at the commencement of their shift the approved manager is accepting responsibility for ensuring that liquor is supplied and possessed on the premises in accordance with the conditions of the liquor licence.
Consequently approved managers are liable for any breach of the Liquor Act 1992, which occurs while they are the person in control of the premises.
