Since 2005 the Liquor Act 1992 and related legislation has gone through some of the most significant changes in the history of the Queensland liquor industry including the 17 Point Plan, State-wide 3am lockout, the introduction of annual license fees, mandatory RSA and RMLV training and bans on glass and full strength alcohol at major events. Bans on glass in high risk venues and a significant reduction in late night trading hours are also currently being considered. The need for expert advice, compliance auditing, staff and management training, major event planning, and assistance with liquor license applications has arguably never been greater.

RSA Liquor Professionals provides licensees with a complete suite of compliance, licensing, training and consultancy services to ensure compliance with the Liquor Act 1992 and related legislation at a time of unprecedented legislative change within the Liquor Industry.

RSA Liquor Professionals is lead by its Director, Russell Steele, a former Principal Liquor Compliance Officer with the Liquor Licensing Division and Office of Liquor & Gaming Regulation. Russell brings his expertise from nine years with the State’s liquor regulator, and ten years prior experience working in and managing licensed premises and major events in Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Russell has in-depth knowledge of these recent changes to industry relevant legislation, OLGR practices and procedures and a highly developed ability to practically apply the requirements of legislation to the day to day operations of licensed venues. Russell is an experienced trainer who for the last five years has instructed on the Queensland Police Service Liquor Investigators Course, and now brings this experience to train staff in the mandatory Responsible Service of Alcohol course and managers in the mandatory RMLV course.

RSA Liquor Professionals provides expert advice to licensees and prospective licensees across the State and draws from the extensive experience of its Director, Mr Russell Steele, who has 19 years experience in the liquor industry as both a regulator and Hotel Manager.
