Ministerial directions applying to ILGA

In ​making decisions under the gaming and liquor legislation, ILGA is subject to ministerial directions that contain timeframes for the determination of certain matters. These ministerial directions are designed to improve the transparency and timeliness of ILGA's decision making, without compromising its independence as a statutory decision maker.

As part of these ministerial directions, the ILGA Board is required to arrange with Liquor and Gaming NSW for the publication of its reasons where certain decision timeframes have not been met. 

This includes where:

  • Gaming machine and liquor licence applications are not determined within 120 days.
  • A disciplinary complaint has not been finalised within 180 days.
  • A decision on a third strike has not been finalised within 90 days.
  • A merit review of delegated decisions made by Liquor & Gaming NSW and a disciplinary decision made by the Secretary has not been finalised within 120 days.
  • A decision in relation to an application to impose, vary or revoke licence conditions has not been made within 120 days.​
