Alcohol Guidelines public consultation and submissions

During the development process a draft of the Australian Guidelines to Reduce Health Risks from Drinking Alcohol was published and the public invited to submit comments on it as required by the NHMRC Act 1992.

The consultation process

A review and update process of NHMRC's 2001 Australian Alcohol Guidelines: health risks and benefits began in 2006-07. The draft revision Australian alcohol guidelines for low-risk drinking were released for public consultation from 13 October to 11 December 2007. One hundred and sixty-two submissions were received from a variety of stakeholders including individuals, government agencies, health organisations, health professionals and the alcohol industry.

A complete description of the process of updating the Guidelines can be found at Appendix 3 of the guidelines.

Of the 162 parties that made submissions to the alcohol guidelines consultation, 103 consented to have their submissions made available on this website.
