  • Changes to the Security Industry Act 1997

    13 March at 19:31 from atlas

    On 8 January 2015, minor changes to the Security Industry Act 1997 (the Act) commenced.  The changes mainly provide more clarity, including that:

    • Class 1A, Class 1B, Class 1C, Class 1E and Class 1F licences do not authorise the licensee to carry on a security activity with a dog;
    • a Class 2A licence authorises the licensee to:
      • sell security methods or principles; and 
      • act as a consultant by identifying and analysing security risks and providing solutions and management strategies to minimise those security risks
    • a Class 2B licence authorises the licensee to:
      • sell (and provide advice in relation to) security equipment;
      • sell the services of persons to carry on any security activity;
      • act as an agent for (or otherwise obtain contracts for) the supply of persons to carry on any security activity, the supply of any security equipment or the supply of any security activity; and
      • broker any security activity by acting as an intermediary to negotiate and obtain any such activity for a person in return for a commission or financial benefit;
    • a master licence (other than a renewed licence) comes into force on the date specified in the licence;
    • a Class 1 or Class 2 licence (other than a renewed licence) comes into force on the day on which the licence is collected or, if the licence is posted to the licensee, 4 working days after the latest photograph of the licensee was taken.
