    A Takeaway Alcohol Management System (TAMS) is a simple scanning technology system that implements a daily alcohol purchase limit. The scanners use legal personal identification to allow licensees to register how much an individual has purchased on any one particular day, across all takeaway liquor outlets within the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley. This practice will assist licensees in ensuring the restrictions for takeaway alcohol are being adhered to.
    • Takeaway liquor may not be sold:
      - in individual containers more than one litre of liquor with an alcohol content of 6% or more (for example, wine casks or more than one litre); and
      - in glass bottles of 400ml or more of beer
  • Similar restrictions on the purchase and consumption of alcohol apply to other nearby communities
