Mutual recognition for security and investigation agents licence

Mutual recognition allows your current interstate security licence to be recognised in Tasmania. Mutual recognition only applies to employees and individual agents who hold an equivalent current security licence in another Australian state or territory. The interstate security licence being used to apply under mutual recognition cannot be used if it was also obtained under the Mutual Recognition Act 1992.

Mutual recognition does not apply to an agent body corporate (company) which must apply through the normal application process.
