Notice: Western Cape Liquor Act Amendment Bill and Regulations 

The Western Cape Legislature has published proposed amendments to both the Western Cape Liquor Act and the Liquor Regulations.  One particular amendment that we believe will be of concern deals with section 60 of the Act and section 27 of the Regulations (see below) setting out the requirements for the keeping of records. 

It has been proposed that the following wording – for consumption off licensed premisesbe removed from section 60(1)(a) of the Act.  

This amendment will, if promulgated, result in on-consumption retail licence holders (accommodation establishments, restaurants, pubs, etc) having to comply with the keeping of records as set out in Regulation section 27(1). 

Should you object to this particular amendment you can either make comment directly yourself or you can forward your comments and views to the Western Cape FEDHASA offices and we will compile a consolidated submission on behalf of the members. 

Should you decide to forward comment to FEDHASA please would you let us know: 

  • which of the required records you would be happy to compile, retain and forward annually [see section 27(1)(a) to (d); (1A); (1B); (2) and (3) below]  


  • which, for whatever reason, you would not.  

Should you object to any one or more please motivate each objection. 

Should you wish to add your views to a consolidated FEDHASA submission please forward comment to Rema at  on or before midday on the 28 February 2024. 

The official deadline for submission is the 29 February 2024. 

The complete gazette setting out all of the proposed amendments and the submission address can be found below.
