Member clubs are advised that today, the NSW Government announced that it is mandatory for clubs and other businesses to have a digital sign-in system from 23 November 2020.
As foreshadowed in Circular 20-191, ClubsNSW has engaged with the NSW Government to ensure that the requirement for digital sign-in is technology neutral.
Accordingly, clubs may continue to use their existing digital sign-in systems rather than be required to switch to use an alternate method, such as a QR code.
Under the Public Health Order, clubs are required to collect contact and entry details of every patron including their full name, entry time and date, and contact details (preferably a mobile number).
By virtue of the NSW Government’s announcement, clubs who currently use paper sign-in will be required to adopt a system that enables patrons to register their details electronically. Service NSW provides a free digital check-in system for businesses to use. Information on using the Service NSW app can be found in Circular 20-162.
ClubsNSW is working with the NSW Government to seek a regulatory position whereby clubs who use the Service NSW app to sign-in patrons will be compliant with their obligation to sign-in and record the details of temporary members and guests under the registered clubs laws.
For more information, read Circular 20-198.
