On 1 July 2011, amendments to the Security Providers Act 1993 commenced, requiring all security providers in Queensland to be fingerprinted as part of the licensing process.
If you are a current licensee, you will need to provide your fingerprints when you next renew your licence, on or after 3 October 2011. When your licence comes due for renewal, and you are required to have your fingerprints taken, the process will be detailed in the renewal letter that you receive from us, about six weeks before your licence expires.
