Register of licence, registration and permit holders

The Register of Licence, Registration and Permit Holders is a public register of persons and businesses licensed and/or registered to carry out activities under the Private Security Act 2004, (the Act). See:

The Register contains the following details:

  • name
  • licence or registration type
  • licence or registration number
  • a list of activities authorised to be carried out under the license or registration
  • licence or registration expiry date

Members of the public should only engage business operators and individuals who are appropriately licensed or registered for the activity they are undertaking.

It should be noted that persons who have applied for a licence and/or registration under the Mutual Recognition Act 1992 or the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Act 1997 may not appear on the register. Applications under either of these two acts may take up to 28 days to appear.

A licence or registration holder can apply to renew the licence or registration before the expiry date.

The Act provides that where an application to renew has been made, the licence or registration is to be treated as still in force after the expiry date, until the Chief Commissioner makes a decision about the renewal application.

This means that in some instances, a licence or registration holder is able to keep working in the activities allowed by their licence or registration beyond the expiry date on the register.
