Certificate of Compliance (Alcohol)

All licensed premises must have a current Certificate of Compliance (Alcohol). This certifies that the proposed use of the premises (for the alcohol licence) meets the requirements of the Building Code and Resource Management Act 1991.

These are required for all new premises licences. They may also be required if you are making changes to your business or building and applying for a variation of licence conditions. It is important that you apply as soon as possible as we cannot issue your licence without it.
