Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority

The Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority (ARLA) helps New Zealanders by looking into decisions made by district licensing committees and local authorities.


  • review decisions about licences to sell alcohol and to issue manager's certificates
  • hear appeals against provisional local alcohol policies
  • publish a list of all active licences and manager's certificates in New Zealand.

ARLA is supported by the Ministry of Justice.
