Published resources in the directory are open access and originate from government-led departments and research. The resource and its data sources are open access.

The directory features data on alcohol consumption, related harms, and retail of alcohol.

This resource was developed as part of a programme of all-island cooperation on alcohol policy driven by the North South Alcohol Policy Advisory Group (NSAPAG) which is chaired by the Institute of Public Health.

The resource was first made publicly available in May 2019 and is updated quarterly.

IPH moderates and upload resources to the Alcohol Data Directory on behalf of the NSAPAG.
