Mandatory industry association membership now required for all Queensland security firms.
The new mandatory membership arrangements are designed to strengthen the industry and improve standards and consumer protection by giving industry associations a role in ensuring
security firms are operating within the law.
All security firms must become a member of an approved security industry association by 26 April, 2011.
Security firms who do not have an active membership with an approved association by that date will be at risk of having their licence cancelled. Security firms cannot legally operate in Queensland without a licence
