New ABC Law in effect July 1, 2022

A new law, California Assembly Bill 1221(AB 1221), also know as the Responsible Beverage Service Training Act, will mandate that any on-premise alcohol server and manager must have a valid RBS certification from an ABC accredited RBS training provider & pass an online ABC administered RBS exam within 60 calendar days from the first date of employment.

This will impact employees at over 56,000 businesses in California that are licensed by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). This includes businesses such as restaurants, bars, wineries, breweries, and any business that sells alcohol for consumption on the premises.

AB 1221 will be taking effect on July 1.  Get certified HERE.  Visit for more information.
