The administrative hearings process addresses disciplinary matters related to ABC law violations, contested license applications and franchise issues.
Hearings are conducted by the Hearings, Appeals and Judicial Services Division, an independent adjudicatory division within Virginia ABC that schedules and conducts hearings on issues brought to the ABC Board for resolution. It is our policy, in compliance with statute and regulation, to conduct full, fair and impartial hearings in an orderly manner according to due process standards.
The Virginia code provides for a reduction in the length of any suspension and a reduction in the amount of any civil penalty for any retail licensee where the licensee can demonstrate that it provided to its employees alcohol server or seller training certified in advance by Virginia ABC (COV §4.1-227).
