California’s New Laws and Regulations for 2023

Our partners at George Petersen Insurance have compiled a list of the top 10 California laws and regulations for 2023.



California’s Mandatory Alcohol Server Training Law Goes into Effect July 1, 2022. 

The new law requires alcohol servers and their managers at over 56,000 businesses to meet mandatory training requirements under the Responsible Beverage Service Training Program Act. By August 31, 2022, all of them must register with ABC, be trained by an ABC approved Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) Training Provider and pass an ABC exam. Anyone hired after July 1 must pass the exam and be certified 60 days from the first day of employment.
