A card with logos and text reading, 'Goldfields Banned Drinkers Register now in effect. No ID, no purchase.'

Goldfields is the third region in Western Australia to have a BDR trial, joining the Pilbara and Kimberley.

When customers scan their identification at the point of sale, new machines will show whether they are on the BDR and can be legally sold alcohol.

The system is designed to assist licensees in addressing alcohol-related harm by enabling them to identify people prohibited from purchasing takeaway alcohol.  

It is one of the several tools available to help manage the negative impact of alcohol intake across our communities.

People can voluntarily elect to be on the BDR, or they can be subject to a Prohibition Order or Barring Notice preventing them from buying alcohol.

Meanwhile, a mobile app has also been developed to support licensees' management of the BDR program. The app is intended to primarily support licensed premises with drive-through bottle shops.

The trial will be independently evaluated to optimise the long term success of the BDR and identify how the initiative can be improved.
