Online legal resources available to licensees and the public from the PLCB include:
Advisory Opinions are issued in response to written requests from licensees or their representatives and are binding on the Pennsylvania State Police, Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (BLCE).

While each Advisory Opinion applies only to the specific factual scenario presented by the party requesting clarification, licensees may find value in reviewing past Advisory Opinions because they generally inform audiences as to the PLCB’s position on issues of interest to other licensees.
