19296Verifying Security Company License in PA
- Jan 21, 2014
A colleague approached me asking how to verify if a company is licensed to operate in the state of Pennsylvania.
The situation is as follows: A Pipeline Company (for the gas industry) out of Wisconsin has sub-contracted a Texas owned Security Company, for work being conducted in Pennsylvania.
What is the legality of this?
From what we are finding a company can operate no longer than 90 days in PA without a license. An exception being if the security company is owned by a power company, this one is not it is as I stated a sub-contractor.
What is the most efficient way of doing a license search n PA? Does it have to be done county by county?
Any assistance /suggestions would be appreciated.
