Risk Assessed Management Plans

RAMP experts for your licensing needs.

What is a Liquor Licensing Risk Assessed Management Plan (RAMP)?

A risk-assessed management plan (RAMP) is a Queensland Government requirement for licensed venues. It’s a document that describes a liquor licensee’s management practices and procedures at their licensed premises.

“We used Russell and the RG Strategic team to get our liquor license for our new coffee roasters in Yandina. We couldn’t recommend them enough. We received our liquor license in a fantastic timeframe and it really took the hassle out of a hard process. Do yourself a favour and get RG Strategic out to your venue. Their experience is second to none!”

Risk Assessed Management Plans and your licensed venue

When applying for a liquor licence in Queensland you may be required to develop and have in place a Risk Assessed Management Plan (RAMP).

This RAMP sets out details of how you will:

  • serve your patrons (food and drink),
  • set maximum hours of operation,
  • implement safety and security measures, and
  • ensure staff are following all requirements of responsible service of alcohol.

A Risk Assessed Management Plan outlines how a licensee will manage their premises to minimise harm caused by alcohol abuse and misuse.

It is a great tool to use for new staff induction and training and is a document that management should refer to regularly to ensure all elements are up to date with liquor licensing regulations.

Your RAMP must be approved by the Commissioner as part of your application, and you must provide signage in your venue that you have a RAMP and patrons are able to request to read it.

Errors and omissions in your RAMP can delay your liquor license

Be aware that if there are any gaps in your RAMP it may mean a delay in your liquor license application being assessed and approved.

As all new liquor licence applications require a RAMP it is important you have this document researched and prepared by industry specialists so no element is left out, which could halt or delay your application.

You can apply for the RAMP requirement to be waived if you are deemed Low Risk e.g. some cafés and restaurants. It is at the discretion of the Commissioner if this waiver is granted.

The RG Strategic team is experienced and knowledgeable in all forms of liquor licensing applications, Risk-Assessed Management Plans and Community Impact Statements.

In our business of building renovations and construction, we often turn to professional consultants to guide us through the ever-changing rules that apply to this complex industry. RG Strategic with Russell Green leading his team has helped us through many of our projects, including the construction of our new factory/studio complex and a myriad of renovation projects that we have undertaken, none of which could have been successful without the invaluable assistance of Russell. Speed is often critical when processing town planning applications, due to tight build schedules and clients’ expectations, and Russell continues to amaze me with the speed and efficiency in which he undertakes all his work, with a powerful and effective commitment to each and every project. RG Strategic and Russell are our secret weapons.

I engaged the services of RG Strategic to help with a unique council development application, Russell and his team came highly recommended. To say that I was impressed with Russell's professionalism, attention to detail and his knowledge of the process is an understatement. At one stage my application was not looking great, this is when Russell really pulled out all stops to ensure that my application got across the line. It was subsequently voted through 6-1 at a council meeting. I would highly recommend Russell, Tracey, Maree and the rest of the team at RG Strategic. Thanks Russell.
