The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 states that when alcohol is being sold or supplied to the public on any licensed premises, a certificate-holding manager must be on duty and responsible for compliance with the Act, the conditions of the licence and the conduct of the premises.
A manager's certificate is initially issued for a 12-month period and then is usually renewed every three years. Manager's certificates are issued to an individual, so it transfers with you if you work elsewhere.
You must have completed training prescribed in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 before you apply for your manager's certificate.
The Licence Controller Qualification (LCQ) is made up of two unit standards:
For further information on the LCQ, please visit the Service IQ website.
Alternatively email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org and a reference number will be forwarded to you to quote when making payment.
Accepted methods of payment are either by cash, eftpos, cheque (made payable to Waimakariri District Council) or internet banking. If you want to pay your application fee by internet banking please email your completed application to email@example.com. Council staff will contact you by email with a reference number for payment. Processing of your application will commence once payment has been received.
Manager's certificates must be renewed after an initial 12-month period and then usually every three years.
Council sends out a reminder letter and a renewal application form (pdf, 40.9 KB) to holders of manager's certificates to inform them that their certificate is due to expire. It is therefore important to inform the Council of any change of address. The process for renewal of a manager's certificate is similar to the application process.
For those currently holding a general manager's certificate, a Bridging Test must be completed before renewal to update their LCQ in line with the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. The District Licensing Committee (DLC) may issue a 12-month limited renewal for those who do not complete the Bridging Test before renewal.
For those currently holding a club manager's certificate and the LCQ, a Bridging Test must be completed before renewal. For those without the LCQ, this must be completed before renewal. The DLC may issue a 12-month limited renewal to those who do not gain the LCQ at the time of renewal.
For further information on the LCQ and Bridging Test, please visit the Service IQ website.
