Code of Practice

What is the code?

The basic principle underpinning this Code of Practice is that alcohol is not an ordinary household product despite being sold in many convenience stores, supermarkets and service stations.


As a result, the Irish retail industry drew up this Voluntary Code on the responsible retailing of alcoholic products, and committed to the Minister and Department of Justice and Equality, and to the Minister and Department of Health and Children, that it be implemented in full by all participants.


The Code went live on December 1st, 2008.
