Crowd control register

Businesses or events that employ crowd controllers must keep a register that includes the full name and address of:

  • the person for who runs the business or event
  • the location where the register is kept (while still active, the register must be held at a business' or event's location)
  • each crowd controller - include their ID card number, licence number and, start and finish times.

The security register must be kept for at least six months and be available for inspection by:

  • a police officer
  • the Commissioner for Consumer Affairs or their delegate
  • an authorised officer under the Fair Trading Act 1987.

Authorities can ask for the register to be kept longer than six months - they must do this in writing.
