What is a forum or accord?

The establishment of liquor licensing forums and accords in local communities is a pro-active means by which Responsible Alcohol Victoria, Victoria Police, licensees, councils and community representatives can work together to improve community safety.

These meetings enable licensees to raise questions associated with liquor licences and local issues and are an important opportunity to engage with the local community to help reduce alcohol-related issues in and around the licensed premises. Initiatives that emerge from these forums can lead to a marked decrease in under-age drinking and late night violence.
