Licensee responsibilities for display and promotion of alcohol (groceries and supermarkets)

Where an off-licence is issued with a single alcohol area, the licensee must ensure that for the single area:

  • no display, promotion, or advertisement for alcohol occurs on the premises at any place outside the alcohol area
  • no reconfiguration or rearrangement of the layout occurs so that the alcohol area contains any area through which the most direct pedestrian route passes between either the main body of the premises and any entrances or between the main body of the premises and any general points of sale (check-outs)
  • there is no display, promotion or advertising of products that are not alcohol within the alcohol area if there are no subdivided areas, or within the core area if the area is sub-divided
  • if the area is subdivided into two or three areas, there is no display, promotion or advertising of products that are not alcohol within the secondary sub-area unless it occurs at a time when they are not displaying, promoting or advertising alcohol in that sub-area (and there is no display, promotion or advertising of products that are not alcohol within the overflow sub-area). There is no display, promotion or advertising of products that are not alcohol within the overflow sub-area unless it occurs at a time when they are not displaying, promoting or advertising alcohol in that sub-area.
