The consumption of alcohol by adolescents is of concern for a number of reasons, like brain damage, alcohol dependence and an increased risk of an alcohol related death.

In order to reduce the availability of the toxic substance alcohol, a higher compliance with minimum age limits for alcohol should be achieved. In turn, the higher compliance with the law will contribute to the prevention and reduction of the harm from alcohol use (specifically among adolescents). In this report an overview is given of age limit policies for alcohol in the EU. Good practices at the level of legislation, enforcement and research were found all over Europe to reduce the availability of alcohol for minors.
