ATTENTION NEW APPLICANTS AND RENEWING LICENSEES

POTENTIAL LICENSING DELAYS

The Bureau of Security & Investigative Services (BSIS) is scheduled to transition to BreEZe, the Department of Consumer Affairsí online licensing and enforcement system, in mid-January 2016.

The transition to the new system will require a temporary shutdown of all BSIS licensing and complaint intake processes for several business days, and could result in delays in processing initial license applications, license renewals, and employee or company name or address changes.

License Renewals: Individuals holding a BSIS license with a December 2015 or January 2016 expiration date and who have yet to submit their renewal application, as previously advised by the Bureau, may experience delays in the processing of their application.

New Licenses: Individuals seeking a new license from BSIS who did not submit their application by November 23, 2015, as previously advised by the Bureau, may experience delays in the processing of their application. Individuals seeking licensure around the end of December or first of January may wish to wait to apply for a license after BSISí transition to BreEZe in mid-January 2016.

In addition, the current Security Guard On-line Licensing system will be permanently shut down approximately two weeks before BSISí transition to BreEZe.

The new BreEZe system will, among other things, allow current and future BSIS licensees to submit online initial and renewal applications, make payments online with a credit card in a secure environment, and track the status of their application.
