RSA house policy

Responsible Service of AlcoholA house policy provides a framework for both patrons and RSA staff in understanding the responsible serving principles adopted by venue management.

A good house policy is a simple statement, or series of statements that reflect the principles implemented by the venue and can cover such things as:

  • Not serving minors or intoxicated patrons

  • Not conducting irresponsible liquor promotions

  • Ensuring quality food is always available

  • Promoting safe transport options to patrons

  • Offering discounted non-alcoholic drinks

  • The venue’s approach to dealing with problem patrons

  • Restricting the types of drinks sold after midnight

A good house policy can be used to help RSA staff reinforce acceptable serving practices of the venue.
