Online alcohol sale and delivery code of conduct in Australia

Retail Drinks Australia is the national industry association representing the interests of all off-licensees in Australia. The association officially launched its Online Alcohol Sale and Delivery Code of Conduct in July, and has signatories on board who represent over 80% of all alcohol purchased online in Australia.
The code is a voluntary industry-wide framework developed in collaboration with government and community to enhance compliance in the responsible online sale and delivery of alcohol.
Retail Drinks CEO, Julie Ryan, said the primary purpose of the code is help retailers ensure they are trading responsibly in the online alcohol space. This also means helping to address concerns that alcohol could be delivered and supplied to minors or people who are intoxicated.
