If you hold a master licence and wish to temporarily increase the number of security operatives you are authorised to provide, you can apply for a Temporary Excess Provision of Services (TEPS) permit.

TEPS permits are limited to a specific day or a specified period. You can use the Public Register of Licences to verify TEPS permits.

Click here to apply for a TEPS permit quickly and easily online via Service NSW.

SLED must receive TEPS permit applications at least one full working day before the specified period is due to begin, for example permits requested for work over a weekend must be lodged with SLED by the close of business on the Thursday before.

TEPS permits cost $150 a day, or part of a day, for each day within the specified period.

Your TEPS permit must be approved before you can provide the additional security operatives.

If you can’t apply for your TEPS permit online, you can apply by sending an application form to SLED.

You can find the P1122 Temporary Excess Provision of Services (TEPS) permit application form in the Application Forms section of the SLED website.

Send the completed form, with the appropriate fee, to SLED for processing by one of the following methods:
