Current licence holders
Current licence holders will be sent a courtesy reminder letter and application form approximately 8 to 10 weeks prior to the expiry of their licence. Licensees must advise the Security Industry Registry of any change of address within 14 days of moving. This also ensures that all documentation is sent to the correct address.
NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that an application is submitted in sufficient time to allow processing prior to the expiry of your licence.
