Retail of Alcohol Standards Group


The Retail of Alcohol Standards Group primarily focuses on work around preventing underage drinking, as well as promoting high standards among alcohol retailers.rasg2transparent


Key Issues:

RASG developed and maintains the Challenge 25 scheme and created Community Alcohol Partnerships. The group works on all licensing related issues and serves as a forum to share best practice and develop new policies in relation to responsible retailing.

In December 2014 RASG published guidance on the responsible retail of alcohol in England and Wales. The guidance was the result of unprecedented collaboration between retailers and looks to establish standards for alcohol retailing for the first time. A full copy of the guidance is available here:
