Kan. Admin. Regs. § 14-19-40 - Class A clubs; automated devices

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

(1) "Automated device" shall mean any mechanized device capable of dispensing wine directly to a customer in exchange for compensation that a licensee has received directly from the customer.
(2) "Business day" shall mean the hours authorized by state law during which alcohol can be served on the licensed premises.
(b) No licensee shall allow an automated device to be used on its licensed premises without first providing written or electronic notification to the director of the licensee's intent to use the automated device. The licensee shall provide this notification at least 48 hours before any automated device is used on the licensed premises.
(c) Each licensee offering customer self-service of wine from any automated device shall provide constant video monitoring of the automated device at all times during which the licensee is open to the public. The licensee shall keep recorded footage from the video monitoring for at least 60 days and shall provide the footage, upon request, to any agent of the director or other authorized law enforcement agent.
(d) The compensation required by subsection (a) shall be in the form of a programmable, prepaid access card containing a fixed amount of monetary credit that may be directly exchanged for wine dispensed from the automated device. Access cards may be sold, used, or reactivated only during a business day.

Each access card shall be purchased from the licensee by a customer. A licensee shall not issue more than one active access card to a customer. For purposes of this regulation, an access card shall be deemed "active" if the access card contains monetary credit or has not yet been used to dispense 15 ounces of wine.

Each purchase of an access card under this regulation shall be subject to the liquor drink tax imposed by K.S.A. 79-41a02, and amendments thereto.

(e) In order to obtain a prepaid access card from a licensee, each customer shall produce a valid driver's license, identification card, or other government-issued document that contains a photograph of the individual and demonstrates that the individual is at least 21 years of age. Each access card shall be programmed to require the production of the customer's valid identification before the access card can be used for the first time during any business day or for any subsequent reactivation as provided in subsection (f). Each access card shall become inactive at the end of each business day.
(f) Each access card shall be programmed to allow the dispensing of no more than 15 ounces of wine to a customer. Once an access card has been used to dispense 15 ounces of wine to a customer, the access card shall become inactive. Any customer in possession of an inactive access card may, upon production of the customer's valid identification to the licensee or licensee's employee, have the access card reactivated to allow the dispensing of an additional 15 ounces of wine from an automated device.

This subsection shall not apply to wine dispensed by an automated device if the wine is dispensed directly to the licensee or the licensee's agent or employee.
