Alcohol licensing law in New Zealand is set by the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. Applications for alcohol licences and managers' certificates made in Hamilton are determined by the Hamilton District Licensing Committee (DLC), an independent committee appointed by Hamilton City Council. Council also appoints alcohol licensing inspectors, who report on all applications and monitor licensed premises for compliance with the Act, and supplies its administrative staff to provide support to the DLC.
