Genesis looks at impact of new Liquor Bill for Nedlac

Genesis Analytics has been contracted by Nedlac to undertake an independent assessment of the economic, health and social impact of the proposed amendments to the Liquor Amendment Bill. 

Led by Ryan Short, partner in the Shared Value practice, the team working on this important project includes experts in both health and economic modelling. 

Genesis will be drawing on its vast experience in conducting regulatory impact assessments and in working with all social partners.

Amongst other amendments, the Bill seeks to restrict the advertising of liquor; increase the legal drinking age from 18 to 21; rezone alcoholic outlets; and extend liability for harm done by alcohol abuse to manufacturers and distributors.
