Eastern Cape proposes New Liquor Law

Liquor Law -  The MEC of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism for the Eastern Cape published the "Eastern Cape Liquor Amendment Bill, 2015" on 31 July 2015.   Members of the public only had 14 days within which to comment on the Bill.   This period is extremely short, as the general public may only have learnt of its existence by chance, such as reading one of the newspapers which choose to report on it. Once the Bill is signed into law, it will be known as the "Eastern Cape Liquor Authority Act, 2014" and will replace the current liquor act - the "Eastern Cape Liquor Act (10 of 2003).  

Please contact us if you have any questions on how the proposed new liquor law may affect current and / or proposed liquor licence holders in the Eastern Cape, may contact us on - [email protected].
