We check licences listed under the following Acts:

This search tool brings back a snapshot of current licensees from the register maintained under each of the above Acts. It is updated daily and provides only details of the licence number, licence holder, licence type and expiry date. In some instances, where a renewal has been lodged and not yet processed by this Office, the licence may appear to have expired. If the licensee appears on this list, their licence is deemed to be current.
