Limitations on selling liquor via telecommunication channels

status:
No progress
Published:
The retail sale of liquor across prefectural borders via any telecommunication channel (including the internet) is restricted. Furthermore, grandfathering old licences is unfair to new entrants.

Recommendations

  • Japan should abolish the telecommunication channel limitation within the liquor retail licence system.
  • Japan should stop the practice of grandfathering licences.
