ABOUT THE TEMPORARY LICENCE FOR SECURITY GUARDING (PANDEMIC)

Pursuant to section 17 of the Regulations under the Private Security Act, please note that the BSP is authorized to issue a temporary agent licence to an individual to address the need for temporary labour due to a pandemic.

All requests for temporary licence for security guarding (pandemic) will be processed promptly. If you are issued such a licence, an email will be sent to you and you will be able to verify the validity of your licence on the Register of licence holders.

Exceptionally, no printed licence will be sent to you. You will not be able to work in the private security field until you receive confirmation by email that a licence has been issued.




RENEWAL OF TEMPORARY LICENCE FOR SECURITY GUARDING (PANDEMIC)

You will receive an email with a web link to a mandatory form to be completed.

Given the exceptional nature of the pandemic, the renewal of temporary licences for security guarding issued in this context is permitted for an additional 120 days, as long as the pandemic will generate temporary labour needs.

All holders of temporary licence issued as a result of the pandemic will receive, 20 days prior to the expiry of their licence, an email with a link to a web form allowing them to renew their temporary (pandemic) for an additional 120 days, if desired.  The renewal application must be made mandatorily through this web form.




FEES PAYABLE ANNUALLY

The renewal of a temporary licence issued as a result of the pandemic is free of charge. However, pursuant to section 22 of the Regulation under the Private Security Act, the third consecutive renewal is subject to the payment of an annual fee since the cumulation of the 120 day validity periods exceeds the one-year period following the initial issuance of the licence. These annual fees will be payable once a year, if applicable.

The annual fees must be paid using the web link renewal form, that will be emailed to the temporary agent licence holder.
