On 22 August 2018 amendments to the Northern Territory Liquor Act 1978 (the Act) were passed in the NT Legislative Assembly, introducing a minimum alcohol unit price MUP, commonly referred to as a minimum floor price. On 1 October 2018 the MUP was set at $1.30 per standard drink contained in the alcohol product, where the meaning of 'a standard drink is the volume of a liquor product that contains 10g of ethyl alcohol when measured at 20°C'. The legislative amendment prohibits selling alcohol below the price of $1.30 per standard drink (as compared to the $1.50 recommended by the Riley Review), and imposes the minimum price as an automatic condition of a liquor licence.
