Qld Security Licence Applicants Now to be Fingerprinted

As of 3 May 2011, anyone applying for a Queensland Security Licence will now be fingerprinted as part of the licensing process.

This new requirement, brought about by recent changes to the Security Providers Act 1993, will bring Queensland into line with other Australian states that already have the fingerprinting process in place. The Security Industry Licensing Units aims to prevent any criminal elements from entering into the industry, or from remaining in it.

Security providers that already have a security licence, will need to undergo fingerprinting on renewal of their existing licence, or by 1 August 2011. Anyone that refuses to be fingerprinted, will not be issued with a Queensland Security Licence.

The cost for fingerprinting is $100 and can be completed at one of the 14 Queensland Police Stations that has the ability to perform this process.
