Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) is a certification that is aimed ensuring that staff who are serving or supplying alcohol, do it responsibly and correctly such as not serving minors or patrons who are already in an inebriated state. It is also targeted at minimizing the possible harmful effects of alcohol.
Both licensees and staff come under the purview of RSA. Therefore, both are held accountable in case they fail to provide responsible service of alcohol.
