Privacy statement—please read
The Office of Fair Trading collects information, including personal information, on this form as
required by the Security Providers Act 1993 to process your application. In accordance with this
Act, some personal information may be passed on to police services in Australia (including
federal, states and territories) for criminal history searches. Enquiries may also be made with the
Department of Home Affairs to verify eligibility to work in Australia. Your name and address will
be placed on a register which may be inspected by the public upon payment of a prescribed fee.
Additionally, information on this form can be disclosed without your consent where authorised or
required by law. Under the Fair Trading Act 1989 information may also be shared on a confidential
basis with other Australian fair trading agencies.
No GST payable on licence fees (see list of licence fees on page 2).
Mandatory criminal history check fee of $39.35 (inclusive of $1.13 GST) is payable in addition to
the fees listed.
A mandatory fingerprinting fee of $100.00 (GST exempt) is payable in addition to the fees listed
and criminal history check fee. The fingerprinting fee is payable at the time of lodging the
original application and will not need to be paid again unless your licence expires.
So that your application for a licence can be considered, all applicants are required to have
fingerprints taken by the Queensland Police Service. You will be advised in writing of the process
to have your fingerprints taken after your application is lodged. An appointment must be made
before attending a police station to have your fingerprints taken for the purpose of this licence.
You should read the mandatory fingerprinting privacy information statement attached to this
application.
Already fingerprinted
While you have a current licence under the Security Providers Act 1993 you only need to have your
fingerprints taken once. This applies even if you apply for any additional security licences.
However, you do need to give your fingerprints again if you have had them taken for another
reason. For instance, you may have been fingerprinted if you hold a gaming or weapons licence or
hold a blue card.

Mandatory fingerprinting privacy statement
Under the Security Providers Act 1993 (the Act), the Office of Fair Trading requires your fingerprints
to be taken to confirm your identity and to undertake ongoing probity checks under section  of
the Act.
Your fingerprints will be taken by specially trained Queensland Police Service staff who are
authorised to do so. Once your fingerprints are taken, they will be securely stored by the
Queensland Police Service Fingerprint Bureau. Your fingerprints will also be uploaded onto the
National Automated Fingerprint Identification System (NAFIS). NAFIS is operated and secured by
CrimTrac, the Australian Government agency that also provides the criminal history search service.
As a Commonwealth agency, CrimTrac must operate in accordance with the Commonwealth Privacy
Act 1988.
Criminal History Checks will still be conducted on every licensee and any additional names
identified by the initial fingerprint identification process will also have criminal history searches
conducted against them.
Ongoing probity checks will be performed daily by comparing fingerprints stored on NAFIS against
unidentified latent fingerprints from unsolved crime scenes. This is in addition to overnight
matching of licence details against the Queensland Police Service database to determine if a
licensee has been charged with a disqualifying offence.
Fingerprint records will also be available to other police services in Australia. However, your
fingerprints will NOT be available to the Office of Fair Trading.
As your fingerprints are only required while your security provider licence is current, once your
licence ceases, because it has expired, the application has been withdrawn or the Chief Executive
has cancelled your licence or has refused to renew your licence, your fingerprints will be destroyed.
The fingerprint records to be destroyed will only be the fingerprints taken as part of the security
provider licence process. The destruction will include the copy stored at the Fingerprint Bureau and
the security provider licence fingerprint record stored on NAFIS. The destruction will be performed
by two highly qualified fingerprint specialists and will be done in the presence of a Justice of the
Peace. Destruction will be scheduled automatically after all appeal rights are exhausted. You will
not have to request to have this done.
