Our College recommends three key measures that governments can implement to reduce alcohol related harm.

  • Reduced trading hours.
  • Reduced availability of alcohol through reduced outlet density.
  • Application of a stepped volumetric tax on alcohol.

The College also supports:

  • Efforts to reduce young people's exposure to alcohol advertising
  • Mandatory collection of data on alcohol use in emergency department presentations, and alcohol sales data.
