Regulation of Australian Security Consultants
Australian security consultants are subject to differing rules throughout the nation. It is important that consultants operating in relevant domestic jurisdictions understand their legislative responsibilities in the provision of advice.
Attached is a table provided by Global Public Safety Pty Ltd that lists:
- Primary legislation
- Current requirement for licensing or otherwise
From a compliance, insurance and reputational position alone, it is important that security professionals providing advice in the relevant jurisdiction align with local regulatory requirements.
It is also important that Security Consultants and/or Advisors regularly check for any legislative changes that might have been recently introduced for their local jurisdiction. This is a recommended risk minimisation approach.
