Bringing together evidence, policy and practice to reduce alcohol harm
Minimum unit pricing compliance
Dr Peter Rice – Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems
Following on from NHS Health Scotland’s evaluation that minimum unit pricing legislation is being effectively enforced, this episode looks at the ways in which this is being done. Dr Peter Rice from Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) describes how the Scottish legal enforcement framework operates, such as the role of Licensing Standards Officers in offering expertise and mediation to license owners, and the frameworks basis in previous compliance schemes such as test purchases.
