The Licensing Authority keeps a register of licence and certificate holders.

The register helps you make an informed decision when recruiting an employee or engaging an individual or company to provide private security or private investigation services.

In particular, you can search the register to find out whether a person or company has ever had their licence or certificate suspended or cancelled. Use the register to:

  • check whether a person is licensed or certified
  • check whether a company is licensed
  • check the history of a person’s licence or certificate
  • check the history of a company’s licence.
